I was cleaning my room and going through my scrap book when I found something that I wrote last 2005. God heard my prayers and is now married to a wonderful man whom I met in yearbook. We have been in a long distance relationship for almost 4 years before we got married.

A prayer

Guide me Oh Lord as I walk in this journey of life. Help me to be patient in this race ahead of me. Light my path so that I may not walk into temptation. Guide this fragile heart of mine so that I may not tread the path of destruction. Let me always choose to suffer afflictions in living your words and will rather than enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. Help me O lord so that I may reach the stars of my dreams. Help me in all the decisions that I make for I never know every consequences it would bring. Help me in my plans and undertakings. Let me live in faith, hope, love, humility and integrity. Let me live with others in kindness and goodness. Let me know when to comfort and when to retreat back in silence. Do not let me be loud, proud and never to boast about tomorrow for life is full of uncertainties. Let me seek to serve you and this humanity. I trust in you oh Lord never to leave me in this life's journey and that your words will be my guiding principle and strength.

My heart is empty and has been once shattered and broken. If ever then that love will come let him be a man of strong faith, humility and integrity. Let it be someone who truly loves and understand. Oh Lord I pray for I am weak. If ever I am given in marriage, always light my path so that I may be given with purity. Let me be a loving, faithful and temperate wife. Let me love his shortcomings as I am not perfect too. Let me always stand by his side. Let me be a loving mother to my children and be able to discipline them grow and walk in righteousness. Let my love and kindness shine in their hearts. Let me not seek for my own happiness but for their happiness-happiness which is not against your will. Let me be a light in my house as a wife and mother should.

Be my strength, be my shelter, be my light but most of all never let me grow weak in faith when things go wrong and dark hours come. My existence, my life is all because of you, have mercy on me so that my life would be fruitful and meaningful. Let me always find solace in you for without you, my life is meaningless, and without you I am totally nothing.
