A Prayer for Wednesday, July 25, 2012


Sometimes we wonder, O God.

We wonder about justice, about fairness, about integrity, about honesty, and about a lot of other necessary conditions that seem to be in short supply in this old world.

Sometimes we are filled with wonder, O God.

We are filled with wonder over the magnificence of your creation, over the intricacies of our bodies, over moments of grace, over displays of love, and over a lot of other wonderful things that are there for us to wonder over if we will just pay attention.

Balance our times of wondering with our times of being filled with wonder.

When the realities about which we wonder threaten to overwhelm us with despair, use the realities over which we wonder to overwhelm us instead with hope.
