Morning Prayer

Prepare me for the battles that come my way today
Keep my mind stayed on you and well above the fray
Let my spirit be uplifted as in your sweet grace I stay
Jesus thank you for this day

Touch those people on my prayer list with your love today
Bring healing to their bodies and strength to those who wait
Help them see the answer to the needs for which they pray
Jesus thank you for this day

Our government needs you Lord for wisdom on this day
Help them follow in the right and Godly way
A new spirit of unity us needed Lord I pray
Jesus thank you for this day

My family needs you desperately in oh so many ways
Give strength to my sweet wife as she goes throughout this day
A touch to all three daughters that you’ll answer when they pray
Jesus thank you for this day

My pastor needs your wisdom to bring the word today
I ask you send your spirit and give him words to say
Bless our church and people and hear them as they pray
Jesus thank you for this day

Now Lord I lift my heart to you and offer up my praise
I worship you with all my soul and thank you for your grace
Your mercy is around me and you hear the words I pray
Jesus thank you for this day

I now arise to greet this awesome day
My feet hit the floor and I am on my way
I know you have heard every word I pray
Jesus thank you for this day¬¬

Time to Praise

Darkness hides the shadows as I wake up with a yawn
I open up my eyes before the coming of the dawn
My feet hit the floor as the sleepiness wears on
It must be time to praise the Lord

Before I rise up from my bed I lift my feeble voice
Before any other thing I will take time to rejoice
Before the day has started His praise will be my choice
This is the time to praise the Lord

Hallelujah Lord I love you
I thank you for your grace
Hallelujah thank you Jesus
Thank you for my wife’s embrace
I will praise you
I will bless your name
From the rising to the setting sun
Not a moment will go by
That my heart will not cry out
Praise the Lord

When I start my day with worship the whole day will turn out right
I never have to wonder if I’m walking in His light
He draws so near to me in the quiet of the night
As I take time to praise the Lord

No matter what the day will bring
Come rain or snow or wind
No matter what my body feels
If I’m well or if I’m ill
My voice will lift up praises
My heart will fill with song
My spirit will rise up to Him
My worship will be sung

Hallelujah Lord I love you
I thank you for your grace
Hallelujah thank you Jesus
Thank you for my wife’s embrace
I will praise you
I will bless your name
From the rising to the setting sun
Not a moment will go by
That my heart will not cry out
Praise the Lord

Not a moment
Not a single moment will go by
That my heart will not cry out
Praise the Lord

Before

Before I rise from sleep
Before the day begins
Before I take one step
I’m going to talk to Him

Before I think of work
Before I plan my day
Before I fix my hair
I’ll ask Him for His way

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

Before my thoughts get full
Before my worries soar
Before my plans are set
I’ll look to His true Word

Before I take a sip
Before one bite goes down
Before my news is read
I’ll turn to His sweet sound

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

He knows the plans He has for me
Plans for good to build my faith
Whatever comes what trials may fall
He knows before to guide my way

Waking Me

Each day I wake to birds
Singing to the sunrise
Cheerfully they chirp
Loud and full of life

I see the morning sun
Color streams from it’s rays
Slowly rise above
Horizon far away

I’m so glad for those birds
Waking me from the deep
If I’d not heard their cry
I’d still be fast asleep

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Heard

From my Chair

I sit here thinking what to do
In early morning hours
I’ve been awake for quite a while
And I’ve taken my shower

And then I see my email
Has a message just for me
So I move the mouse on over
And I take a little peek

It’s the daily prompt, oh goody
Now I’ve got something to do
And in the privacy of my lounge chair
I write this poem to you
