The Prayer of My Heart

21 October 2007
This is the prayer of my heart.

I want a place where I truly fit in. A place where I do not have to worry about being hurt, afraid, lonely, depressed, made fun of, and sick. A place where I can be myself, love the Lord, have friends, sing songs, go shopping, have happiness in life, stay true to the Lord, be pleased with my life, and get what I need to get done.

I want to have the answers I am seeking (I am not going to go into detail on the questions I have).

I want to have someone who truly understands me and my situation.

I want to be married in the temple to the love of my life and have her wake up in my arms each and every morning.

I want to have children of my own, made from my flesh and blood.

I want to be the best father and husband I can be for my future wife and children.

I want to have spiritual experiences and a strong testimony.

I want to have the courage to do whatever the Lord tells me to do.

I want to practice faith and show my devotion to the Lord.

I want to give the world as much as I can give.

I want to serve and honorable full-time mission.

I want to hold a temple recommend every single day of my life.

I want to be a neurosurgeon.

I want to help loved ones, those who are close to me, and anyone who needs help.

I want to develop my God given talents.

I want to be righteous so that I can fulfill my purpose here in life.

I want to be worthy whenever someone asks me to give them a Priesthood blessing.

I want so much but I have to be willing to give up a lot and show the Lord my true devotion to Him. God never said that life here on earth was going to be easy. He has given me SSA for a reason. I do not know why, but I have some inklings of what it might be. This is the trial of my faith and I hope that I can prove myself worthy to God to gain all that I want.

I want all of you to know that I have a strong testimony of Jesus Christ. I know that the power of the atonement is real. It truly works and you will be forgiven of your sins. I also want you all to know that even though your struggles might seem hard right now, it is worth it in the end. You will have learned so much and you will have grown so much, as long as you stick to the teachings of the Church. I know that I have a special purpose here in life and I know that you all have a special purpose here in life. Do not be afraid to do what you know is right and have faith in God because He will never lead you astray and He will show you your true purpose in life.

Gimple,

Thank you for this WONDERFUL prayer. It's so sincere. So inspiring. Thank you for being so honest with your wants.

I know that if you work hard and stay committed to your current resolve that you WILL achieve every last one of them.

I think they are all admirable aspirations. I want many of these same things...especially to have my own flesh and blood children. That's my #1 want I think.

I find myself wanting the same things. I get impatient though, and forget that aspiring to these ideals takes a lot of time and effort and so I let go and fall off the ladder. But, in time, I pick myself up again, and start all over. Yeah, it's frustrating, but worth it.
