I pray for You, Father!
Not because I’m entitled to do so
and not because I’m arrogant,
I know it well, how graceful You are
still accepting me.
I am praying for You,
because I don’t know how long
you can bear the pain I’m constantly giving You
with my careless, obnoxious selfishness,
I would be crashed in an instant
being You even for a moment.
I do not want to give You pain anymore,
I would like You to feel free
whenever You think of me.
Looking at my life, the way I see it,
I hardly can tell, how You can still trust me,
never giving up on me.
Yet, I believe in You, I trust You with my most valuables,
my children and wife, leading them back to You –
I can not be doubt in me, since You have never stepped back from me…
Father, You are great and eternal, gracious and everloving, seeing the absolute good in me.
I long for the day to be like You!
