Prayer, Plain and Simple

“Oh God, you are so creative and generous. The delicious cup of coffee I’m enjoying this morning has to be one of your great inventions. Thank you. I remember (as James reminds me – James 1:17) that every good and perfect gift comes from my Father, from You! Coffee is good, very good, as you said when you surveyed your handiwork at the beginning of time. The fruit of these little bushes tucked away on the sides of mountains in the far corners of the world have come to me on this cold winter morning. How good of you. Bless those who took care to plant and tend and grow and harvest and process and deliver to me these precious little seeds of delight. I am grateful. Remind me through my day to look for other gifts hiding in common sight throughout my day. I admit that I will get so busy today that I will overlook them. But I am thankful. Thank you for filling my life with gifts, good and perfect gifts. You are kind. So this morning, enjoy this cup of coffee with me. You do live in me. Why not relish yourself, through my taste buds, this luscious expression of your genius!
