Lord, bless me to inspire a child with no hope. Let them know that they can be anything they set their mind to. I realize that I cannot save the world, but Lord, give me the strength to try.

I pray that during my life that I will accomplish all my goals and that I will have motivated each and every life the I have touched to do the same.
