        Just for today, Lord, don’t let me look back.

        Guide and direct me on to the right track.

        Free me from demons, temptations and slips

        From wilful indiscipline of a drama that grips

        My thoughts and attention and leads me astray

        To the depths of addiction each step of the way

        To darkness and sorrow, avarice and grief

        Self inflicted destruction,under guise of relief

        And just for today, Lord, let me not look ahead

        In case I get scared of the future or dread

        That addiction may never depart or fade

        Or least I forget ’twas for You, I was made

        And not for a life of Slavery or Death

        But for Joy, Love and Peace

        Truth, Hope, Faith and Mirth.

        So let me look up, Lord on this bright new day

        To see Your Face and embrace Your Holy Way

        I make this my prayer, Lord

        Unite my will with Yours

        Protect and defend me when temptation lures.

        Hear my prayer, Lord

        Come what may

        Safeguard and heal me

          You know the addiction will never depart
          But it’s ok. you know in your heart

          You can avoid the peril that lurks
          Just get yourself back to what you know works!
