I COME TO YOU LORD FOR STRENGTH
My Father, which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name.
Oh My Lord, I am trying to be strong and finish this game.
I want those who love me to see this is real. There is an enemy who seeks to kill, destroy and steal.
I have to say, I feel so weak and I am scared to death, I really would like a day of rest.
I really want to know how to be happy in my soul. Yes, that would be my perfect goal.
I am really determined not to drink with all of my heart. I knew this would be hard right from the start. What do I do Lord? I seem to be running out of strength. I wish I could see the end of this road, or know what is the length?
There are times Lord, I feel no one is around. It is only my thoughts that seem to pound.
They race and race to fight their case. Believe me, there are times and memories I just do not want to face.
What do I do Lord, I want to run? I just want to say "I am done".
My emotions seem to go from the left to the right. It seems right now I am losing sight.
It is easy for everyone to say what I should do, but all I can say is spend a day in my shoes.
Lord, you know I love you with all of my soul, but this staying sober is taking its toll.
All I need is for one person to take my hand. Lift me up when I am too weak to stand.
I do not need judgment, especially when I feel so low, but someone to jump in my boat, take the oars and help me row.
So today Lord, I come to you now, on bended knee I take a bow.
To You Oh! Lord, may You get the Glory. I know it is You helping me to write my life story.
I need your direction as I stand at life's Great Intersection.
Who is it Lord that will take my hand, so when I look back I can say "Thank You" you helped me to stand. Today Lord, I need you to open my heart and eyes.
I need YOUR Strength, BELIEVE me, I do not want to die.
I Love you Lord.
