A Prayer for Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Intersections (Part 2)

O God,

As we encounter the situations and predicaments of life, we will find ourselves both trusting and not trusting you.

Sometimes the trust will outweigh the non-trust; sometimes the opposite will be true. And most of the time, trust and non-trust will be mixed so thoroughly that we experience them both simultaneously if not equally.

Keep us attentive to those times when trust and non-trust—when our giving of ourselves over to your care and protection and our effort to fix it all ourselves—intersect, because it is in those times when we can benefit from whatever struggle we are encountering.

Help us in those moments to learn more of the difference between what we can do and what we cannot do and between being still in our faith and active in our faith. Help us to learn how they go together in the calm, non-anxious life of faith.
