A Prayer

If others become very wicked
Then help me be righteous for You
If others are full of deception
Then help me to speak what is true

If others turn desperate and hopeless
Then help me to tell of Your love
If others may judge me, please make me
As innocent, Yah, as a dove

Please help me, if cruel ones use cunning
As wise as a serpent to be
If others are shackled in bondage
May I, in Your strength, set them free!

If others are drowning in chaos
Please let me send forth, Yah, Your peace
If others are fearful and storm-tossed
May somehow I help worries cease

If others are lost with no shepherd
With You, may I show them the way
If someone sees only the darkness
Then help me to show them the day

If others are scared of the battle
Please help me to stand and be brave
If others are bound for destruction
Through me may you seek them and save!

If others start crushing the needy
Those innocent, poor, and distressed
Then help me to strengthen the fallen
May somehow I help them be blessed

If others keep hating, please help me
No matter what comes, to forgive
If others want purpose and meaning
Please help me declare why I live

If others love sinning and cruelty
Then help me with courage to fight
And if there must be such deep darkness
Then help me, I pray, be Your light!

I am a seventeen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!

  1. I enjoy reading your poetry, Faith. I know I’ve said it before, but I’m partial to the ones you write that rhyme. 😊
