My Silent Prayer

by Darrell Brevard

My silent prayer
I pray to no other God but you
That brighter days 
Will come true
I looked for God 
In all directions
At times of hurt
I look for his protection
Times when I needed him
He said be patient and strong
Times when I was stuck
He taught me right from wrong
Days when I could not see
What God had in store for me
Days when I was in bondage 
But not realizing I was free
The hope that I thought
Went away during the night
The hope I mistook
As an evil blinding light
I pray that he will listen
And that I will understand
That in his image
He created me to be a godly man
That when I stray
When I am weak
God still loves me
No matter what day of the week
The joy of life
He instills in my heart
That joy no man
Can never tear apart.
