A Plea

 

Back to Treasury

 

 

Father, I am a mere human just passing through this valley of tears, determined to reach the Promised Land.

 

The road ahead is not smooth, the temptations are too much to bear on my own, and your punishment too just to bear thinking of.

 

Permit my tears to wash away my sins, and your Holy Spirit to guide me on my way along the path to Your everlasting Kingdom.

 

Turn not my prayers away, save me from the fires of hell, for they are my heartfelt pleas.

 

I am asking this through your Son, my Brother, Jesus Christ.

 

Amen.
