Household Prayer


O God of pans and dish-pan hands,

Of laundry on the line,

O Lord of drawers and dirty floors,

O King of home design;

O Prince of dust, and swept-up crust,

Of soothing tears and pain,

Let not the grind rob peace of mind,

Or interrupt Your reign.

O Potentate of fork and plate,

O Lover of good deeds,

O Liege of treats and folded sheets,

Of vegetables and weeds;

O Governor of every chore,

Dear Maker of my home,

May every task, of Thee I ask,

A Living Prayer become.
