An excellent, emotional prayer written from the heart of a prodigal son.
Your heart's prayer for your dad shines through loud and clear!

To give your poetry a better flow, spend some time on establishing a consistent meter.

I enjoyed that you rhymed "love" with "shove"--great juxtaposition.
This is my prayer for my father-in-law. You captured the heart's cry.
This prayer could be for so many of our loved ones. Thank you for sharing your heart with us and for allowing us to pray it with you.
Very sweet poem. I loved the "little shove" line. Nice job.
You put your heart's cry into a poem that lets the reader see very honestly and tenderly the desire you want fulfilled. I pray your dad has that moment to ask for Jesus' loving grace. Blessings to you for sharing your heart.
This is wonderful! I loved the heartfelt tenderness that came across here, and I especially liked your second verse, it just seemed to fit really well. Great job! ^_^
I sure hope that your father will come to know the Lord. What a great prayer.

Thank you so much for sharing this heartfelt poem.
Very good writing, Becky! I'll be praying for your dad.
I was perusing some older stories and came across this and it really touched my heart. I couldn't help but wonder if since you first wrote this have there been little answers to your prayers. You really grabbed my heart with this one. :)
