Morning Prayer

A chorus of Barn Swallows
greets the new morning.
A simple song of praise,
reminding me
that the birds of the air
do not sow
or reap,
Yet You care for all their needs.

Help me Lord
to take today for what it is,
without worry
about those things I cannot change.
Help me to focus
on Your truth
and not the fables of the world.

give me a voice today
to sing praises
for what You have offered
and not what the world
has tempted me
to want.
