The Knot Prayer

I borrowed this from a friend because I wanted to share it AND because I wanted to be sure I had it recorded for future reference...when those dang knots TRY to come back!
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.

Author known to God
