    that my grandma will finally agree to come and live near us
    help my two friends who are really struggling
    can you please help me get some money before Sunday
    take away her pain please lord
    why does things like this happen? Make it better
    how long will it take for me to learn how to listen to your amazing voice?
    please may you tell me why I am unique
    I wish my mum would listen to me more. I also wish that I could spend more time with her in the week, not just at weekends
    help me to forgive as readily as you have forgiven me
    help me to get over what has happened in my life and help me find out what is wrong with me
