A Prayer for You Today (1)

August 9, 2023

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.

                                                Psalm 36:5


Dear friends.


Significant occasions in our lives present us with the opportunity to reflect on God’s goodness which brought us to the moment. One such conclusion surely must be, He is a merciful God. Let us give Him thanks.


In my routine readings, I came across this old hymn which is new to me, written by Joseph Addison (1672-1719), which may help us to that end.


A prayer for you today:


When all Your mercies, O my God,
my rising soul surveys,
transported with the view, I'm lost
in wonder, love, and praise.


Unnumbered comforts to my soul
Your tender care bestowed,
before my infant heart conceived
from whom those comforts flowed.


When in the slippery paths of youth
with heedless steps I ran,
Your arm unseen conveyed me safe,
and led me up to man.


Ten thousand thousands precious gifts
my daily thanks employ,
and not the least, a cheerful heart
which tastes those gifts with joy.


Through every period of my life
Your goodness I'll pursue,
and after death in distant worlds
the glorious theme renew.


Through all eternity to thee,
a joyful song I'll raise;
for O, eternity's too short
to utter all Your praise!


God bless you and yours in all things great and small.
