Lord, take my life and fill it with those things I need.
Pierce my soul so I accept the growth from Your seed,
for individually Iím too weak to use.
Youíre the only one who can ignite my soulís fuse.

Lord, You have exploded Your greatness upon me.
Now, I swim in the sea of Your gifts floating free.
Help me grasp at those gifts to honor Your treasure,
for all I desire is to seek Your pleasure.

Lord, You give me an overabundance to seek.
Iím overwhelmed for the amount of choice that peaks.
Please harbor what best fits me in the scheme of grace,
for itís only by grace Iím fit for Your embrace.

Lord, thank You for giving me choices to be weighed.
The thought of countless decisions shake me afraid.
However, I know nothing is too much for You,
for You are the one who is abundantly true.

"...light my fuse."
"...abundantly true."--Good lines here. This is a lovely prayer. Well done.

Beautiful prayer! You got the thyme scheme nailed down! Now, to make it really effective, you'll want to work on tightening up the meter, or rhythm of the piece. Usually your first stanza sets the pace, then you construct the others to have a certain number of beats, or syllabic emphases, per line. When you stick with the structure, your thoughts really stick with your readers! Have fun with this, and keep writing!

Beautiful thoughts. As already mentioned the rhythm needs to be tightened up a bit. Overall it is nice piece of work. Keep writing.
