Morning Prayer

by Fred Miller

My transgressions weigh heavily upon me,
Oh Lord. Among the blameless, I do not belong.
Yet, with the morning sun, you lift my heart 
with steadfast forgiveness and abiding love.

This day, may my life become fertile soil 
for the seeds of your eternal wisdom
I so cherish. And may your words beget 
a bountiful harvest of love to fill my life.

As I arise, fill me with wonder, dear Lord.
Lift my heart with righteous glory. 
Guide me toward paths of goodness and
carry my soul in your loving hands forever.

Fred Miller is a California writer and an author of two books. Over a hundred of his poems and stories have appeared in publications around the world over the past ten years. Many are available on his blog.
