Thursday Prayer

O Lord, Creator,
Ruler of the world, Father,
I thank, thank, thank you
that you have brought me through.
How strong the pain was--
but you were stronger.
How deep the fall was--
but you were even deeper.
How dark was the night--
but you were the noonday sun in it.
You are our father,
our mother,
our brother and our friend.
Your grace has no end,
and your light no snuffer.

~~An African Prayer
