Words eluded me today–my stories hanging out just beyond my grasp–skittering about in the mist and fog. They were much quicker than I was today.
I conceded, waving the white flag.
One this last Friday of January, 2018, I decided it was a great time to share a prayer and move on into our weekend.
A Prayer for Patience
Today I feel like every task is a race;
I question much, falling far short of grace.
Such a scary thing, asking for what I need;
Facing new trials, recognizing more lessons to be conceived.
In this moment, Lord, I ask for your restoring grace;
Requesting your wisdom and power to slow my pace.
Dear Father, please grant me patience, please grant
your Holy Spirit be my guide?
Help keep my mind sharp, my ears willing to listen;
Make my hands respond with generosity, sharing all you provide.
May my words convey your messages of love;
My heart projecting comforting light from above.
May I stay aware, my mind focused intentionally;
May all my works and deeds praise you eternally.
God bless you all.
