Dear God, Creator of us all,
You know my heart has taken many falls;
But this evening I now come to You
On bended knee in prayer with every sinew
Asking You to please send my way
The man You made for me that auspicious day
When You bonded me to him and him to me
Soul-mates forever . . . eternally.
I hope he is as sweet as cream
That not a bone in his body is truly mean
Please have him be honest no matter what
No ifs, no ands, no “honey, but . . .”
Please make him empathetic, loving and cuddly
Adventurous, courageous, and funny
I’m not asking for diamonds or rubies or jewels
I don’t care about those things, they’re for fools.
I know this list is probably too much
But with You, I lay my heart in trust
I know You know what’s best for me
Even if that means he may not be funny.
