1.1 A Teenager’s Prayer

Each day brings new beginnings,

Decisions I must make.

 I am the only one to choose

 The road that I will take.


 I can choose to take the road of life,

 That leads to great success

 Or travel down the darkened road,

 That leads to great distress.


 Please open up my eyes, dear Lord,

 That I might clearly see

 Help me stand for what is right,

 Bring out the best in me.


 Help, Lord, to just say “no”

 When temptation comes my way,

 That I might keep my body clean

 And fit for life each day.


 When my teenage years are over,

 I know that I will see

 That life is lived its very best

 With you walking next to me.
