A Soldierís Prayer


Good morning Lord! How are You doiní?
Iíve never spoken to you before
And this prayer thing is new to me.
You see, Lord, my family and friends have always
Told me that you donít exist.
Like a fool I believed their foolishness.

Last night while in my foxhole, I looked up
And saw a cross made of heavenly bodies.
Right then and there I realized Iíd been lied to.
If Iíd just taken a little time to just look around Iíd see that living things
Are in order as are the heaven.
That canít have happened by accident.

Lord, I wonder if You can ever forgive me for being so dad burn stupid!
Somehow I feel youíd understand Ďcause
I believe youíre bigger than my ignorance.
Funny, Lord, that I had to come to my awareness of You
In the belly of a foxhole.
Before I had time to know who You really are.

Lord, as I said before, I really donít know how to pray
But Iím sure glad I met You before itís too late.
Iím really happy Iím having this talk with You
Before I have to go off to war somewhere.

Lord, Iíve never been in a real war.
But I feel that this moment is the most important day of my life.
If I should have to go off to war to defend my nationís freedom,
Let me do so knowing You and having a relationship with You first.
I donít fear for myself any longer for I now know You.
I realize that You will be by my side.

Though I wasnít too friendly towards You,
I wonder if Youíd be there for more of my training.
Thank You for being with me here in this foxhole.
Funny, since I met You this day, I donít fear having to defend my nation.
Thanks Lordógood-bye! Amen.
