Morning Prayer

I was reading a devotional based on some of the text found in Psalm 103.  The reading and the Psalm provided me with an urge to write this poem.  The Psalm is filled with many inspiring verses.  Here is one from Psalm 103:8:

“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.”

Morning arrives quietly with much on one’s mind

Reaching out to the Father, with a prayer to find


Psalms surrounding one’s inner soul with a frame

Blessing God the Father, blessing His Holy name


Thoughts move to life’s trials, several filled with sin

Asking the Lord for patience and forgiveness again


The Lord redeems this wayward life from the Pit

Seeking to be closer to Him, finding a place to sit


God fills all with His steadfast love and praise

Helping everyone make it through life’s maze


The Lord is merciful, gracious, and forgiving

Praying to Him deepens a person with living


This time of prayer offers much humbleness to the Lord

Slow to anger and abounding with so much love in store


A prayerful moment prepares a heart with much to say

Spending moments with God, like a potter molding clay
