Today, I offer you a prayerful poem. Words offered up like breath to Our God from the heart…as we wait, anticipating the joy to come – the hope that is Christmas, and the One who makes all things new, the Eternal Hope Bringer- the Child, that changes everything. Even our hearts. Unto eternity. Amen.
I pray these words bless you today. May they be your own prayer and praise to the One who IS Christmas.
Lord, let every day I live be a thank you.
Let every breath I breathe be an Amen.
Lord, let all my thoughts be in holy communion with yours.
Let my words and deeds – all I say and do
reflect your grace and truth,
my life, a testimony of your faithfulness.
Let this one life be a glass of cold water
to those thirsty, an encouragement
to the weary, and cynical and those wise in their own eyes.
Because you live in me,
there is a reason to rejoice-
there is a hope for us all!
Oh, Lord – This little lamb you have carried
close to your bosom is grateful.
Even now, even still…
Father, God, Shepherd, Lover, Friend and King,
You are faithful.
