Prayer as scaffolding

Counting my blessings
I can't help but see
I'm riding pretty high in the water,
getting a little rusty;
got some holes
that need some plugging--
or does that only mean
I'm holy?
Never mind: When I check in,
The scaffolding's here,
already in place,
and as it stands
the numbers will grow bright again,
the anxiety levels are bound to drop,
and I'll be ready to set sail soon
on whatever adventure lies in store for me.
