A Cowgirl’s Prayer

Thank you Lord

for helping me through

the night,

Thank you for helping me

see the Light.

Thank you for giving to me

this day,

Thank you for teaching me

to pray.

Thank you for keeping safe

all that I hold dear,

Thank you for guarding me

from fear.

Thank you for blessings

great and small,

Thank you, Lord,

for one and all

I call my own

and even for those

I must disown,

I thank Thee

for those lessons

in forgiveness,

I thank Thee

for the trespasses

that I witness,

for they keep me


and they keep me


they tell me


is the human heart

gone wrong;

they tell me

how hatred can tear


every thing that love

has built with wonder.

And so Dear Lord,

I thank thee

for the truth.

And with that truth

I gird my loins

and test my spirit

And enjoin

My heart from rancor

or despair

I go forth

freed from fear

into a world

far from perfect

but also far from


of your love.

I thank Thee, Lord

for Thy trust.

With that trust

I will abide

and work tirelessly


that miracle

called life.
