A Daily Prayer

Ocean Dream by Steve Sundram
Ocean Dream

Bless me, heavenly Father,
forgive my erring ways.
Grant me strength
to serve Thee.
Put purpose in my days...

Give me understanding
enough to make me kind
so I may judge all people
with my heart
and not my mind...

And teach me to be patient
in everything I do.
Content to trust Your Wisdom
and to follow after You...

And help me when I falter
and hear me when I pray
And receive me in Thy Kingdom
to dwell with Thee some day.
Amen
Helen Steiner Rice

Love the poem. And the picture, as always.
My music is down, though, so I can't hear any music.
