Lord, make of my life a fragrant flower
In the garden of Your world.

May others see in my demeanor
A beautiful reflection of Your grace.

When my head is drooping
From the weight of life’s dark storms

Turn me to the sun to see
Your love that shines on me.


Send sweetest rains to wash away
My head tossed high in arrogance

My shoulders shrugged with
Indifference and unconcern

My lips turned upside down in
Complaint and criticism

My eyes closed to the many needs
Of those who are in distress

My jaws tightened and teeth clenched
In stubbornness and anger.


Waft gentle winds upon me
To shape me in Your image.

Make my head to bow before You
In a humbleness of spirit

My countenance to glow alive
With tenderness and love

My eyes to open widely
In caring and concern

My hands and feet to freely move
To carry out Your bidding.

Make my life yield forth Your fragrance
In the garden of Your world.

What a wonderful prayer - a great title too. Thank you
Allison Egley 12/03/10
I like this. Some great reminders in here, for sure.
Henry Clemmons12/03/10
Such a heart for the Lord you have. This was beautiful in the honesty of which your heart spoke. And it ministered to me greatly. Such a gift you have to reach into people's lifes with your words and let God encourage, or heal,, or just simply say I love you. Thank you; a faithwriter for sure.

So true-what we really desire but what we tend to do. Great job!

A wonderful devotional prayer in rhyme. Thanks!

I could easily see this beautiful prayer on a plaque. It would be great to hang by the door and pray everytime I set out into the world.
Rachel Phelps12/06/10
Excellent. What a wonderful reminder.
Amanda Brogan12/08/10
I pray that my body language (everyday actions) are pleasing to the Lord as well.

Very refreshing and honest poetry!

This was a beautiful, heart-felt supplication. Excellent use of this week's topic. Well done.
