A Gangster’s Prayer

Heavenly father, please hear me tonight. I need so much guidance to live my life right. Sometimes the pressure is so hard to bear. I often wonder if anyone cares. How can I wake up and face the new day, knowing i must live my life this crazy way? Heavenly Father, forgive all my sins.

Give me strength to resist the wild life I desire. Help me escape temptation and the fire. Please help my family whose eyes silently plead for me not to do wrong and they pray for me. God bless our mothers who cry every night, worrying we’ll be killed by someone in a fight.

Heavenly Father, please answer my prayers. Please let me know that you’re listening up there. When will it end? What’s it all for? To prove my homies I’m down; I’m Hardcore?” Sometimes I wonder how i will die… By a bullet wound or a knife in my side? Heavenly Father, please hear me tonight.

Show me the way, Lord; Show me the light. Give my heart peace so I won’t have to fight. Thank you for your forgiveness and for still being there. Most of all thank you for hearing my prayer.

Was going through my old stuff and saw this. I’m pretty sure i got it from somewhere.
