A prayer to find a love relationship
Before a word is on my lips you know each thought, each tear,
each joy you see.
For I'm your cherished child.
I find it hard to comprehend the extent of your love.
And I know I rarely see myself the way that you see me.
Lord, you know my heart, you know I long for love.
My search is for that special friend.
For intimacy, for friendship.
For someone to depend on.
I know you watch me proudly
As I live each day, each moment.
Please cause my path to cross with someone
You'd like me to be with.
Guide my heart to take your hand,
To hope and trust in you.
Help me to be patient,
Until I meet somebody who you know will be
A perfect match for me.
I am sure, you want the best for this your child.
