Cleaning Supplies - Christian Poem / Prayer
Thank you, Lord, for cleaning supplies--
Brooms and mops,
Soap and water,
Buckets and sponges and cloths.
Thank you for our daily need to clean things,
Reminding us that only you
Can cleanse our hearts or our world.
Yet our lives can help you clean things.
Use us as you choose,
For cleaning toilets or cultures,
Houses or hearts.
Then keep us in the corner of your house,
Beautified and sanctified
By the one who made us and who uses us.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin!
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
--Psalm 51:2,7, ESV
For a day in your courts
is better than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
--Psalm 84:10, ESV
