Merciful (A Father's Day Prayer) [6/17/2012, Father's Day]
By Leonard Roertson

God be nice to me
No longer damn me
Show kindness
Soothe me with your constant presence
So I am no longer alone

Take away my fear
Help me to understand you love
Show me why you'd send Jesus
To go through death for me
All over again, He also agreeing

Not my will
Your will is best
You understand human reluctance
Moses and Jesus saying
Isn't there another way?

Fatherhood is so sudden
Who is up for the task?
Who is good enough?
Children learn reverence from even the most undeserving fathers
You, Heavenly Father, know best.
