Dear Lord, I'm Johnny, and I come to You in prayer;
I come to You because You've always cared.

I am a child, and I happen to be handicapped--
And, according to You, my future is mapped.

I am in a wheelchair, and I can't walk very well--
And I am sure my family is going through hell!

*WHY* must they cry each and every day?
And why do I get so tired so fast whenever I play?

What did I do to deserve muscles that grow weak?
Why is my future so clouded and so bleak?

I don't want to die; I want to laugh, dance, and live--
I'm just a little boy, and--I have much love to give!!

I don't like to see my family being so sad;
And if You really want to know--it makes me MAD!!

I want to grow up, become a man, drive a car--
But my growing up years won't get very far.

It doesn't seem fair--I'm just a little 9-year-old boy--
And I certainly deserve a lot of happiness and joy!!

But no..I have this awful neuromuscular disease--
And when I think of it, I often want to cry and grieve!

The only good thing is..I am a Christian and am saved,
And the Road to Home for me has already been paved.

I will soon be in Your Arms, in Your Sweet Care--
And I won't have to worry about Satan's lair!!

Jesus, I am looking forward to that, I really AM!--
For I will be Your Child, Your Precious Little Lamb!!

But before that day comes, I ask one thing of You--
PLEASE find a cure for MD, and.make it SOON!!!!

In Your Most Precious Name, I pray, Amen.

Reviewed by Connie Hinnen Cook 10/22/2002
So many good questions in this one. This write is heartbreaking and real. I guess if we had all the answers in life we wouldn't need faith. No one said life would be fair. But our Lord walks it with us, & in His presence is fullness of joy, regardless. Good write!
