In Vain

God (Inspired by)

Dear God,

This is my prayer.

I hope that

You give me the strength

to do Your will

until my last breath.

I pray that I have

the conviction

to follow Your path

through to my death.

Please make my journey

to be straight and smooth

and when it is not to

have you walk alongside me.

Keep me firm in my footing

even when I find myself

faltering on the purpose

you have entrusted me.

Oh Lord,

that my life has not

been lived in vain.

Oh that I may pray

in my final days

that I kept the faith.
