From Book: WHEN A BLACK WOMAN PRAYS

BY Author RAYMOND STURGIS


A Black Woman’s Prayer



Father, I appreciate

all the blessing you have

brought my way.

 

I know I cannot change

my life without your guide

cannot walk with glory

without you by my side, this

is my prayer to you

I willing to do whatever

you ask me to.

 

Father, my babies

need protection and wisdom

the streets are hard

engulfing little children lives

without regard.

 

But I know father you will keep

your arms around my family

as we well deserving accept your

blessings, deservingly.

 

Father, stay in the

middle of my man and me,

I love him, without

a doubt, but he doubts

In his trouble, that’ll you

bring him out

 

I told him

trust in God, don’t harden

your heart

we may love, but nothing compares

to God’s grace

as long as we do our part.

 

Father, as a woman

I fall short of what

you expect of me,

I try Lord, I really do,

I want to be happy

and misery gets the better

of me.

 

Walk with me father

As I see depression and misery fade

I can vision my steps on golden streets

with Angels for company

that pave the way

on the streets you made.
