Pray Not A Selfish Prayer

by Cordelia E.Thomas-Campbell

You showed me you loved me.
Am I seeing you?
You kept my family and you blessed me too.
But still I seem dissatisfied.
Show me how to be grateful for all
the many blessing.
It seems I can't understand some of the things you do.
I know It"s not for me to know.
Somethings are only for you.
Help me not to be selfish in my wants and desires.
Let me know you're with me hour after hour.
Keeping me breathing with you Holy Power.
Teach me not to pray a selfish prayer.
Remembering when I needed you.
You were always there.
We are human and too soon to forget.
In my heart don't let me give up yet!
For you are the God that flung out the stars,
and can number every grain of sand, and there for me on every hand.
How can I question you...for you are a HOLY MAN!
