Daily Prayer: Submission

Plenty of times you sent help my way, but I hid
and I remember once you held me close, but I slid
There was something that I just had to see
that you wanted me to see so I could be what you wanted me to be

And I think I’ve seen it, but I don’t feel the same
Matter of fact I know I’ve seen it, I can feel the change
and it’s strange almost got me beating down your door
But I have never known love like this before

It’s a wonderful feeling to get away from the pain
and up under the ceiling I get away from the rain
And the strain that I feel when I’m here is gone
I know real so I wipe away the tears with a song

My Prayer – Ashe

I am offering a little piece of me.  

I am sharing my daily prayer with YOU.  

I hope that it will inspire and bring some additional guidance to your life.  

It has done wonderful things for me…
