55. my prayer for today

I thank the Lord today
in my bed as I lay
waking up to a new day
although missing the sun's rays

I heard the rain's pitter patter
on the roof and on the ground
a mild storm, is it on its way?
I can tell from the rain's sound

I hear Chip Ingram in the background
his podcast, what is it about?
he talks about personal failures
and how life's difficulties,they compound

when failures happen, do you also feel
God's attempts to get your attention?
a money problem, a health issue,
a serious bad news, do you see a revelation?

my prayer to my Mighty God
I do acknowledge your calling
Speak to me, reveal the words,
With an open heart, I'm listening.

Praise the Lord!


  1. It's a new day tho the sun is not shining. (Although I admit I love a good rainy day now and again.)

    Have a great day, sister.

  2. Thank you. It is indeed a new day. A new day to experience God's love and promises. New days bring hope. :)

  3. I'm late... Hope is what we all need. Thank God for His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:23)

    [Thank God for Google for I know what the Bible says but I couldn't recall what verse it is.]
