    My Little Prayer

    I kneel right down to say my prayer

    And offer up my every care.

    But first I thank for all I hold

    And do not stop till each is told:

    My eyes, my hands, my walking feet;

    The friends I always love to greet;

    My home and loving family;

    Each of my blessings plain to see!

    And then I pray for what I need:

    For intellect to help me read;

    For kind, sweet words among my friends;

    For proper health and rain God sends.

    I kneel right down to say my prayer

    And realize that God is there.

    He listens to my every word,

    And this I know: my prayer is heard!
