Dear Jesus (Emma's Prayer)

(Performed by Emma Rice, age 8)
February 1, 2006
Music & Lyrics by Debbie L. Rice
This sweet little prayer was inspired by the real prayers of my daughter, Emma. She was 8 years old when I wrote this, and it's taken me a year to talk her into recording it for me!
Dear Jesus (Emma’s prayer)

Dear Jesus
Thank you for this day
Dear Jesus
Thank you for the rain
And Jesus
Thank you, for my friends
Oh Jesus
Let our friendship never end
Dear Jesus
Dear Jesus
Amen

Jesus please hold me as I sleep tonight
Guard me with angles till the morning light
Draw me nearer to you each day
And guide my footsteps along the way
Guide my footsteps along

Dear Jesus
Help me to be good
Dear Jesus
Help me do the things I should
And Jesus
Help me to act more like you
Oh Jesus
Be proud of me in all I do
Dear Jesus
Dear Jesus
Amen.
