Mar 4, 2021 || Daily Thought & Prayer


Thought

Great skill in building ships

For expeditions to unknown

Arms that pull the oars along

Must be united muscled strong


Great faith in self and winds

To ride the monster waves

Charting brand new territory

On vessel reeling in the sea


Great love of the waters deep

Whose temperament none predict

Against mouth poised to overthrow

Adventurers’ work to sail and row


Great contrast glassy icy fjords

That yield to oceans vast and free

What lies beyond horizon’s edge?

Discoveries are resolved in pledge


Great these gifts and qualities

Applied to every moment seized

Mobilised not for greed or piracy

But acquiring heights of courtesy


Prayer

Thou art great and yet closer than breathing. Grant that I may unreservedly adventure with no map, compass or guiding light except Thee. For You have placed greatness in me in order to reflect the greatness in Thee.
