a prayer.

Lord, thank You for this day

that I get to breathe

to laugh

to love

to.. live

what more can I say?

 

Can I love You for the moments

when I fell apart

broken

torn

done

only reassured when You whispered "it's okay"?

 

Can I praise You for the times

I was floating on cloud nine

radiant

proud

blessed

hearing You say "there is more on the way"?

 

Can I adore You proudly

for the light on my path

guiding me

teaching me

guarding me

"from My plan for you, you won't stray"?

 

 

Can I exalt You eternally

for the people around me

loving

motivating

loyal

"cousin, let's go and play!"?

 

Can I serve You faithfully

for the everyday things I don't thank You for

walking

talking

simply.. breathing

"with You, not a cloud in the sky is gray"?

 

Can I give You my all

for this entire life

a step

a chance

a.. blessing

"with me, You will stay"?

 

here I am, Lord,

calling onto You,

again

daily

forevermore

I will bow my head and pray.
