My Prayer

Dear Lord please help me for I am lost, I've lived my lif on tyhe edge and paid t he cost. Learning every lesson in life the hard way, wishing for a better way, praying for a better day. To you I give my heart and soul, So I may once again be whole. Never again will I harvest so much hate. Within your hands I leave my fate. Lord I surrender to thee. I am your to command for I have failed as a father , son and man. Send your angels to set my mind free So I may become the man I was made to be. I'm down on my knees Lord,hear my cry. I can no longer live this life of lies. Take my future and forgive my past for without your love I will never last. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
