Oh Lord, I pray over my day

Oh Lord, I pray over my day –
In my work, in my walk, and in my play.

You see no difference in what I do –
Because it can all be done to glorify YOU!

Hooray, hooray…
I gotta say!

‘Cause now I’m free,
To be the me –
YOU WANT ME TO BE!!

A poem inspired on 11-13-12 after our family prayed together for our day. I “accidentally” ended my prayer with the first stanza’s rhyme, and then felt an overwhelming desire to plunk out a quick poem. I haven’t done that in awhile, and it was fun. 🙂

Thank You, Lord, for the gift of words! Verses that come to mind are: Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2 NIV84) and But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it–he will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:25 NIV84)
