A Simple Prayer

Are you happy with me, Jesus?

A Simple Prayer

Are you happy with me, Jesus?
  Did I please you at all today?
  Was I loving and forgiving
  as I knelt down to pray?
Or was I foolishly unbending?

Did I make you proud today, Jesus?
  Did I even try to forgive?
  Say an encouraging word of some kind,
  though it is difficult to live
with past failures on your mind.

Are you angry with me, Jesus?
  As I fell into temptation.
  Did it hurt you when I slid?
  If it's any consolation,
I am sorry if it did.

Can you please forgive me, Jesus?
  For my failings and my faults,
  for all the time I hurt you,
  with my deeds and my thoughts.
Your help will guide me through.
