Prayer by Ann Wood


I, the sinner, pray for hope-

not to easily destroy my soul.

To go where my heart leads me.

To be strong, even to be wrong.

I, the noisy, pray for insight-

to be wise, bright and good.

To learn more of humility

and to squeeze what the time is gathering.

I, the disobedient, pray for patience-

to wait long for my reward.

Touch God's favor with me.

To welcome him, the smile and the young.
