The Knots Prayer

For this week's Write A Letter Wednesday I'm posting something I didn't write, but it's so good that I wanted to share it with you . It's one of those email forwards that gets passed along. The author is unknown.

Dear God,

Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.

Remove the have nots
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots, may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots and should nots
that obstruct my life.

And most of all, Dear God,
I ask that you remove
from my mind, my heart,
and my life, all the am nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.
