A Prayer for Saturday, September 29, 2012


A disruption is an interruption that really fouls things up.

We don’t like disruptions, of course. We don’t like them because we can’t anticipate them, we can’t prepare for them, we can’t control them, and sometimes we just about can’t handle them.

Remind us, O God, that disruptions can be a gift in that they remind us of what life is really like; they destroy the illusion that we are in charge and thus call us to renew our trust in you.

Still, we cannot downplay the reality that disruptions are challenges with which we must deal and we need much grace, faith, and courage so that we can get through them and come out on the other side having made progress.

So we give those mysterious disruptions that are surely coming over to you, O God, and ask you through them to make us better.
