I Praise the Lord With Each Breath!


Jesus, may I not do something

that would bring YOU shame.

Nor say something that would

dishonor your name.


May I have a daily desire

to give to you praise…

And a desire to do your

 will all of my days…


In the Bible, King David enjoyed

 fellowship with you.

May I have a heart like

David in what I do.


Time alone with you,

 is what I really need.

May I seek your direction,

wherever you lead!


I need to fall in love

with you over again…

May I give you all of my trust, 

as my BEST friend!


Your awesome and mighty

works need to be told!

May I share your message of grace

to the young and old!


With each passing day and

 hour that goes by.

You give living water that’ll

never  run dry!


Every day I live and 

each breath I breathe…

Your gift of eternal life… 

I now receive!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
