{Let us pray}

{Father God I am just learning how to pray, bear with me
First I thank You for the life of everyone that's here with me
Then I thank You for the love You give me, why?
I don't know; I don't deserve it, and it hurts inside}

{Many a nights I cried, and called Your name out loud
But didn't call You when I was doin' good, too proud
And still You gave me love, I wasn't used to that
Most of the people that gave me love, they ended up takin' it back}

{That's somethin' new to me, so I'm askin' You for time to adjust
Let me make it there, I will be one You can trust
What I stand for, I put my life on, I do
I guess what I'm askin' is, show me how to stand for You}

{And I will rap for You, sing for You, preach for You, teach for You, reach for You
I will love You like You love me, unconditionally
And I will always be prepared, for whatever the mission'll be
Give the nutrition to me, and I'll properly digest it}

{And when I give it back, I'll show You word well invested
And whenever I go, before I go, let me give
Thanks to You Lord, for my birth, for every day that I've lived
You gave me a love most of my life I didn't know was there
In the name of Jesus! I give You my life, 'cause You care}

{Amen}
