Help me, Dear Lord
as I travel towards You. There are many detours
which will try to distract me away from You.
Help me as I travel my path
to cherish the parents You gave me.
Help me to do my best in all my endeavors whether I may win or lose.
Help me never to lose hope
though there may be difficult times.
Help me to choose good friends.
Help me to choose the right mate,
So that I may have a happy family someday.
Help me, though I may fall,
to continue on my journey towards You Help me, Dear Lord.
I want so much to be with You.
