Before a word is on my lips you know each thought, each tear,
each joy you see.
For I'm your cherished child.
I find it hard to comprehend the extent of your love.
And I know I rarely see myself the way that you see me.
Lord, you know my heart, you know I long for love.
My search is for that special friend.
For intimacy, for friendship.
For someone to depend on.
I know you watch me proudly
As I live each day, each moment.
Please cause my path to cross with someone
You'd like me to be with.
Guide my heart to take your hand,
To hope and trust in you.
Help me to be patient,
Until I meet somebody who you know will be
A perfect match for me.
I am sure, you want the best for this your child.
I ask that you would walk closely with me each day.
You know the desire of my heart to meet someone special,
To marry and devote my love to another.
So I ask that you would lead my footsteps.
Take my hand and lead me as I look for love.
May I find a partner with whom I can share the rest of my life.
Help me to live life to the full with hope in my heart for the future.
May your words be like a lamp that lights my way.
May your love be like a compass that gives me direction.
May your truth be like a signpost bringing clarity.
May your peace be like a measure that guides my decisions.
May your hope be like a flag that declares I walk with you.
May your words be in my mind,
Your love guide my feet,
Your truth be a sign,
Your peace be a measure,
And your hope be a flag,
As I walk close to you at this time.
