My prayer and Gratitude to the Lord

My Lord, it’s high time to show my gratitude,  

My appreciation, dearest Almighty,

For bestowing health, hope, faith and plenitude.

.

With the pandemic ravaging terribly,

Thinking that our time on earth is limited,

Despite hope, great panic is there really.

.

Offering my obeisance, dedicated

To you eternally, I humbly prostrate

Myself, heart and soul by you wholly gifted.

.

My Creator, please, make thanks become innate,

At your feet, I again quite humbly prostrate.

.

    I agree with all the reviewers that the prayer in this poem is fervent . However terza rima has many strict requirements .
