A Prayer for Thursday, November 14, 2013


O God,

Thank you for those times when a sense of contentment—a sense of peace, a sense of wholeness, a sense that it’s all right—comes upon us.

When it comes, help us to rest in it, to enjoy it, and to celebrate it—but help us not to love it too much.

Remind us that while it is right and proper to accept the blessing of personal contentment that can come from increasing wholeness that can come from increasing maturity with its increasing love and grace, we can never be fully content while others are struggling and suffering.

Let our contentment be a secure base from which we can confront the peace-disrupting and peace-destroying forces in the world.
