Stock-Taking + Prayer: I Am Blessed

Father, I come before You as a supplicant, and a penitent, thankful for Grace,
pleading for Mercy, and hoping for Glory. 
Lord, I live in Your Light and walk not by my feeble sight. 
I am no longer a slave for my Jesus conquered Death and the grave. 
Sin can no longer trap me in its cave
because Jesus Christ's blood has marked me "Saved!" 
I am longing for Home and I know that I am not walking alone. 
You are my Lord and my God,
and I thank You for shielding me from the Old Fraud. 
I am Blessed - not lucky. 
I do not wish for anything for You taught me to fish, and You provide the catch, 
and these tears I cry are not for pie in the sky Lord, but hope for Heaven.
Please, Lord, round out my edges, 
and keep me in Your care when there be death ledges. 
Help me when I perform hard chores, and fill me with Your Love, Lord, to my very core.
And, Father, Help me not to believe the Lore, but to stand awaiting Your knock at my door. 
Amen
