simple prayer

Dear Lord, I know how seldom I pray
It may seem as if I only come to You
when I know I have gone astray
and need to cleanse my soul of the guilt
I have built with every passing day

But Lord, this time I'm on my knees
not exactly for myself, not just for myself,
but for others in my care

who've placed themselves in my care
unaware I can barely lift myself
off the dismal floor, off my knees

I fear the beginning of any given day
And struggle between hope and guilt
Help me not to lead them astray
when they believe in me, as I, in You
In Jesus' precious name, I pray
