I ask God to bring you happiness and contentment;
And even when the winds of hurt blow hard and strong
My prayer is that you will be able to stand in the tempest –
Confidence, resolution, passion.
I ask God that you be able to discern all that is good;
And even when the noisy shrill of life is at its loudest
My prayer is that you will be able to sort out what is important –
Tireless, loving, considerate.
I ask God that you be given wonder and wisdom;
And even when the great apathy tries to intoxicate you
My prayer is that you will be not captured and taken in –
Eyes up, soul strong, forward.
I ask God that you be granted grace and mercy;
And when you are told that you aren’t good enough
My prayer is that you will not be discouraged nor distraught –
Thankful, loved, precious.
I ask God that he grant you peace and understanding;
And regardless of the complexities or challenges
My prayer is that your heart will remain pure and patient –
Peaceful, content, satisfied.
We love you.
