My Prayer

I feel your smile on me like the rising sun, radiating, reassuring, confirming your will is done
Yet still I wait for a more audible word, though your Spirit bears witness and my spirit has heard
Lord make me more confident in your silent direction, that I may see Your face in my own reflection
Forgive me for doubting my royal descent and for questioning the destiny, which you've perfectly set
Please give me the strength to cross where I should and the wisdom to know it's ALL for my good
Every lesson in love, patiently given, each vitamin of victory, crafted in heaven
Endurance and strength from each lap and repetition, experience and character from each trial and mission
I am Yours oh Lord, and today it's my prayer, that I never again questions whether I'm under your care.
