Note, I often set the timer on my watch to allow myself five minutes to write a prayer to God. Under that limitation I have no time to worry about rhyme or meter, I can only speak my heart. I often do not share these little prayers as they tend to be corny and cheesy and very personal. However, I did share this with a friend who said she was blessed by it. So I figured, what the fat. If you get by the corn and cheese maybe you will be blessed.
MY FIVE MINUTE PRAYER
I saw the sun break through the night
Bringing me a new morning,
I thought of you Precious Lord and
It sent my sad heart soaring.
I heard a song of praise
From a little bird on a wire
Singing it over and over
To his little heart’s desire.
A beautiful gray squirrel twitched his nose
As he ran up to me
And then he danced
Right there for me to see
In all its beauty and glory
I saw your creation take its delight
Showing and proving to me
That you always do everything right.
And then I saw a little baby in the cold rain
He was carried by a young and loving mother.
She cuddled and protected him from the morning chill
As if there existed none other
My heart and soul were quickened
When I saw her smile to him in love
For I recognized that smile
I just received the same from above
