Eyes to Heaven: A Blind Man’s Prayer
by Frederick Douglass Grimes, III
Dear Lord, Thank you for this day. Because of you I woke up this morning. Because of you I can feel the sun’s rays on my face this morning.
We have traveled many miles together, halfway around the world and back. You were by my side the entire way. For that I am forever grateful. You have been with me through the good times and surely the bad also, never forsaking me, just trying to show me the right path to take. For 17 years I have been In visual darkness, but you have shown me spiritual brightness. I now know that the only vision that I need Is the vision of your love. You have placed so many beautiful people In my life that no matter what trials and tribulations I face, I know that you will always be by my side.
Only you know what Is next for me In my life. I just pray that you will continue to make me a good person. Give me wisdom, courage, and compassion to always help others the way that they have helped me. Your love Is what makes every day worth living. God, bless the entire world!
