Prayer at Midday

the day You have given
is all I can ask to receive.
You have blessed me
with the songs of birds
to begin my morning
and bread for my table.
You have given me
a voice to sing praise
and eyes with which
to read Your word.

the new day
whether bathed with showers
or warmed by the sun
is laid out in perfection.
I will sing praise
for every season
for it is what You wish
to bestow upon me.

when my toil nears its daily end
give me the satisfaction
of tired muscles
and an attitude for prayer.
Feed me the nourishment
my body requires
and the spirit
my soul longs to embrace.
