Dear Heavenly Father
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please give me the strength to go on
through my stay at Covenant House.
Give me the wisdom and the knowledge
to do what is right and not wrong.
And please give me the strength to make
the right decisions about the things that occur:
I know I haven't been making the right decisions,
but I' d like to better that.
Life has not been easy for me through these times,
but I know that you will give me
the strength to go on for I do believe
in you and all you say and do.
