Loving God, be patient with me when I stray from you, when I fail to turn to you during challenging times. Help me remember the simple things I can do to return from chaos to hope, peace, and serenity. For you are able to care for all that exists. Amen.
I can trust my smallest concern to God’s wisdom.
God cares for all things — from the giant redwoods to the tiny hummingbird. I ran across this fern on a hike in Wisconsin a couple of years ago. How beautiful is God's handiwork!
How do you deal with distractions and anxieties?
This third Guide to Prayer by Rueben Job and Norman Shawchuck opens up the spiritual journey to "All Who Seek God." It's my favorite of the Guides to Prayer, partly because of its accessibility and partly because the voices of Job and Shawchuck come through more clearly through their written contributions.
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.”
