My Journey to God

My Prayer

Jesus Christ, the King of Glory,
Hero of the greatest story,

Help me to love you as I ought,
I whose life you dearly bought.

Help me to know your will each day
In all I think or do or say.

Forgive my sins, I humbly pray
And guide my footsteps lest they stray.

And, Lord, please bless all those I love—
Those here on Earth and those above.

With thanks and praise, I say “Amen”
Until I come in prayer again.
