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

Wanting to reach out in prayer for God to find

Psalms surround one’s inner soul with a frame

Blessing the Lord, blessing His Holy name

Thoughts go to one’s inequities and life full of sin

Asking the Lord for patience and forgiveness again

The Lord redeems one’s life from the Pit

Seeking to be closer to Him is where 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 for a great day

Spending precious time with God who has much to say
