This is a poem that Petra Waterstraat wrote for W.O.P. (Thanks, Petra!!!), and I hope you enjoy it:

Dear Daddy, Abba,
Father, who made me
Hear me crying.

O, Shepherd, Spirit,
Diviner of life
Guide my searching.

Jesus, my Savior,
Giver of all grace,
Forgive me now.

Awesome Creator,
Miracle maker
See me smiling.

I did, however, want to end W.O.P. with a certain prayer--the perfect prayer. I present to you Matthew 6:9b-13:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
   on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
   as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
   but deliver us from the evil one.
