I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. - Psalm 9:1 (NRSV)

Once again I couldn’t sleep. Unresolved fear and anxiety became magnified by the dark quiet. Praying only made me focus on my troubles even more and question if God really cared.

I snuggled under the covers, shut my eyes, and began remembering the good things that had happened that day....

Today's Prayer
Dear God, may your love drive out our worries and give us peaceful sleep. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
