A Slave's Prayer


(Author unknown)

 Please let me forever be open
to learn and understand.
Please let my service be absolute,
to accept Her guiding hand.

Please let me have patience,
when angry, hurt, or full of doubt.
Please let Her be my Mistress,
and correct me should I shout.

Please never let me shame Her,
or disappoint Her in any way.
Please give me strength in my submission,
let me make Her prouder every day.

Please know that this prayer is sincere,
every word coming deep from this slave’s heart.
Please know how much I need to serve Her,
my devotion always Hers from the start.
