So Today, of All Days, I Pray


God gave me faith in myself,

Not only on days when I’m doing great and winning

And nothing seems impossible

But on days when the whole world looks different…

And I’m wear and the road ahead holds little promise.

When my family is looking to me for strength

When I wonder if I’m brave enough, smart enough

And understanding the I must be crazy to try,

don’t let me quit Lord, not ever.

Let me keep the faith in myself,

no matter how often I get





Please Lord

Listen to me.

Let me hear another voice telling me,

“You can do it and you will!”

If nobody else in this world gives a darn or believes in me,

Let me believe in myself.

I know there’ll be times when I will doubt my own abilities,

When I’ll be discouraged and on the verge of despair,

Don’t let me give up,

Hang onto me.

Fan the fires so that I’ll try even harder.

Give me more faith in myself…

Let me be that person for others

Dear Lord, Today is a special day,

You know my pain, please don’t allow me to turn this in on myself.

You are the source of all life and power.

You are the source of my abilities and my faith.

Thank you for reinforcements.

I know that You will give me for what I ask…

Faith in myself.
