O Lord, holy is Your Name!
As one of Your many children,
my inheritance I openly claim.

Willingly I lift my voice in praise,
thankful for Your new mercies
and the warmth of the sun's rays.

With genuineness of heart
and a simplicity of words,
I desire for Your kick start…

to begin this glorious day,
as I'm covered with blessings,
and faith's fragrant bouquet!

Forgive me of my ignorance
and lack of spiritual understanding,
when I kneel before Your Presence.

Teach me Lord about true forgiveness;
etch its precepts into my heart;
allow me to remain covered by thy holiness.

Bathe me with divine inspiration,
and cover me with Your Essence,
before I embrace… death's cremation.

Thanks for meeting my earthly needs;
keep me focused on right priorities
and spreading your Word's holy seed.

Help me share my poetic story
and touch the lives of others,
until I reach… Heaven's glory.

Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Matt 6:9-13
