A Jogger's Prayer 2

Here I am again, writing down my prayer,
my thoughts to you as I jog
It’s been years since I did this
but you know it can be difficult to write
and jog at the same time
What matters is that I do have that time with You
and it is precious – an oasis of peace in a busy day

I thank You for this place where I live –
the quietness, the fresh air, and sunlight
glinting on dewy grass and leaves
I thank You that I can jog in safety
The traffic is sparse and hazards are few

I thank You for the small blessings
that radiate and brighten each day
I am glad for my shoes that seem
on the verge of falling apart
but still they manage to do the job

I see blobs of bird poo on the ground
and marvel that I have escaped being splattered
So many trees line the road – gums, blackbutts
and stringybarks
Surely many birds have perched above me
as I’ve trotted below, unaware
I have been blessed

I think of my friends, my family
and those outside that circle –
the ones who bug me or see things differently to me
I know I should love them all
But I can only do it through You

For I am, by nature, hard and judgemental
I am quick to label and assume,
quick to close my heart to people
and situations I deem too hard
Only You can soften me and mold me
into a loving Christian

So I think and I pray
and I am reminded of Your love
Your goodness and Your constant presence
I am grateful that You are here,
for surely that is who You are –
Emmanuel, God with us
God with me
I thank You
