A Prayer, With Humble Thanks
We’ve walked together, Lord,
Through a maze of life’s events
And some of it is clear to me,
And some just won’t make sense.
You’ve answered prayers, I didn’t ask,
Inspired my direction,
You give me things I don’t deserve
And honor our connection.
I’m humbled by your willingness
To stay right by my side,
Even when I’m disappointing
Or I’ve failed at things I’ve tried.
I love that you don’t give me
Everything I think I need,
Because you know far more than I
The prayers that you will heed.
I’ve learned through all the ups and downs,
And thank you for each one
For I know with less experience
I’d miss the things you’ve done.
You’re the Alpha and Omega,
The One whom I adore
And even when I’m down and out
I couldn’t love you more.
I don’t worry about tomorrow
For you’ve given me today,
You’ve offered me my daily bread
And the chance to work and play.
There’s nothing that I have, Lord,
That didn’t come from you
And nothing that I want
Unless I know you want it too.
So thank you for the gift of love
You’ve shared with me since birth,
You’re my Savior and Protector,
My greatest joy on earth!
With a warm wish for a Happy Thanksgiving to all of you…with great joy. I’m so thankful for each of you!
