Prayer for the Day
I don’t know where I got this – it’s not orginal – but it’s too good not to pass along!
“God of the depths, searcher of hearts,
You know the tulmult of my life, a busyness that bruises those nearest,
a loneliness that claws at the soul,
a fearfulness that leads to distrust and cynicism.
You know my longingfor a more centere life
- time for reflection in prayer,
gracious, unhurried times with friends and family;
renewing rest and exercise;
growing moments to deepen my faith and witness.
God of my days and my wishes,
lead me today so I can let go of that which pulls me from your path.
Give me courage to persist in prayer,
excel in kindness
and walk gently on the earth.
Heal the wounds I carry,
fogive the sins I committed yesterday and I will commit today,
and lead me to new life.
In the name of Jesus.
