About the Poem

My Grandfather is a preacher, so I grew up in church. My Grandfather has taught me a lot, and I am dedicating this poem to him. I was in bed one night saying my prayers when this poem came to me.

A Few Visitor Comments

I love this prayer!

Dear Lord

Dear Lord, from Heaven above,
I am sending all my love.
I pray that when I die,
You'll take me to your palace in the sky.

In you, I do trust,
To follow your word, I'll do what I must.
Your only son you did give,
To let the rest of us live.

I know you will keep me from sin,
And keep me from the devils den.
I pray it is my fate,
To one day see that pearly gate.
