Do you roll your eyes in frustration, Lord,
after I pay no consideration to you, to your reality,
– not even to frequent sense?
Do you wish to dope slap me, Lord,
after I miss the higher, proper option to make
– when it is staring me proper in the face?
Do you ever flip and stroll away
after I, for the thousandth time,
make the identical silly, silly mistake?
No, Lord, you do not…
As a substitute,
you present me again and again the issues I’ve didn’t see,
you look with compassion and mercy on me and all my folly,
you at all times, freely, pardon my sins and grant me a brand new starting…
Affected person, type and compassionate Lord,
be gracious to me right this moment – as you at all times are –
and assist me develop in your grace…
