The Daily Shower

Here I am, Lord, filthy, dirty with the sin of the world.
I am caked with the mud of sin and disgrace.

So, I strip off my grubby exterior, therefore standing naked
before you, my grievous sin shamefully exposed.

I step into the shower of prayer, and turn on the stream of your
cleansing blood. So overwhelming is your forgiveness, I am
invigorated by its warmth.

I then take the bar of grace and mercy, and vigorously cleanse myself
with your love. I watch the filth of sin run off of me, and down the drain.

Next comes the shampoo of your pardon. I feel so unworthy of such loving
tenderness. You condition my newly cleansed soul, preparing it to face
the world's harsh wickedness.

After the shower, I towel myself off with your salvation, feeling refreshed
and restored. I then clothe myself with your righteousness, ready
to face the world anew.

Thank you, Lord. Amen and amen.
