NIGHT PRAYER: Tuesday 11/16

Simply after dinner this night 
I used to be folding my laundry 
and here is what got here to my thoughts, Lord…
How grateful I’m for the dinner I had:
    tasty, nutritious meals
    and greater than sufficient
    so there’s some left for lunch tomorrow…
How grateful I’m for the garments I put on:
    effectively made, good cloth, 
    good colours that match and distinction…
How grateful I’m to dwell in a home
    that is protected and heat and clear,
    with laundry machines within the basement
    and loads of Tide and a field of Bounce
    to make sure that I sleep on mushy sheets…
How grateful I’m to have a bureau and closet
    to retailer my freshly folded issues
    and an additional closet the place neatly hung
    is my summer time wardrobe, 
    simply ready for spring…

My laundry has taught me a lesson, Lord:
    I am awash within the bounty of all that, I’ve,
    a lot, too a lot of so many advantageous issues
    and greater than I want on this world of ours
    the place so many have a lot much less,
    the place so many don’t have anything in any respect…

The giving season’s upon us, Lord:
    grant me a grateful and beneficiant spirit
    to share with others what’s been given to me,
    to offer for others as I have been equipped,
    to offer ’til I really feel not less than a pinch
    of what it means to be with out,
    of what it means to go with out, 
    to really want what I really want
    and be grateful only for that…

Shield me, Lord whereas I am awake
and watch over me whereas I sleep
that awake, I would hold watch with you
and asleep, relaxation in your peace…
