But Now I am Found

Prayer Shawl Hanging from Rod

One day at a time

Sweet Jesus

You taught us to pray

.

Not for yesterday

Not for tomorrow

Only for today

.

So I’m praying today

.

For my family

My friends

My enemies

My self

The lost

Those who stumble

Those who fall

.

Help us all this day

Father, we pray

Somehow shine

Through this maze

Called life

.

For you are

Our God

Our Creator

Our Father

Our only glory

.

Among this clay

Smooth out the cracks

Redraw the lines

Recolor the tint

.

That this world

Will see only you

In this body

This spirit

This sinner

This lover of self

This pilgrim

This “good” person

This crying soul

This marked entity

.

Branded with your cross

Forever and ever

This weeping one

Humbly prays

This day

.

Abba Father

My God

My Redeemer

My Lord

My King

My Savior

The great I AM

.

Amen

    Great job with this one!

  5. I loved this word–prayer shawl

    • I “go” into my closet and pray! Portable, private and potent. 🙂

      • unable to do that physically but oh, the sanctuaries I pray at in my mind!

      • Isn’t it awesome to go ANYWHERE with your mind?!!!! That’s another reason I would rather read a book than watch a movie or video. My mind plays it out in my own reality.

        Prayers, Deb, and I bless you with hugs and special thoughts. Please take care and thank you for your unique friendship. You are indeed a blessing to me. 🙂

  6. Jeanne – Nice and will fit perfectly into my devotion for today. Thank you my lovely friend.
