When I Pray

I pray sometimes for you
Ask God to take away your pain
Or make it bearable so it’s no longer visible in your eyes
I ask him to give you peace of mind
And maybe some hope
A lot of strength too

I sometimes pray for you
With all I have I ask God to cleanse your new wounds
And heal the old
So they aren’t even noticeable anymore
So you forget the hurt ever existed
But forever remember what you learned

I close my eyes, press my palms together and direct all my attention and energy to the prayer
I put my essence in it
Begging him to supply your needs
Because though I know you
Only he knows your heart

I pray for you
I pray that you will find all you need and everything you are looking for
But mostly when I pray
I pray that you know you are loved
