But Now I am Found

Prayer Shawl Hanging from Rod


© Jeanne E Webster


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

    Great job with this one!

  4. 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. 🙂

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