Love and Forgiveness – A Poem and Prayer

 hammer

Forgive me Lord . . .

For the many times I’ve been so caught up

in the new problems of the day

that I never even thanked you,

nor even at first noticed

the answered prayers of yesterday.

I am truly thankful for your love,

Your patience,

Your provision,

And your constant presence.

Teach me to reflect your love in my suffering

Just as you did when you suffered

So much more than I can ever comprehend

Out of your immeasurable love for me.  Amen
