A Prayer for Friday, March 21, 2014

Fifteenth Day of Lent

O God,

There is so much going on both inside and outside of us and so much of it is important.

Perhaps some of the things we treat as important aren’t and perhaps some of the things we treat as unimportant are. Or perhaps every single thing—

every atom,
every second,
every event,
every thought,
every feeling,
every word,
every action,
every motive,
every decision, and
every relationship—

is important.

If so, it is more than we can bear.

So help us

to pay the best attention we can,
to make the best effort we can,
to think the clearest thoughts we can,
to have the noblest motives we can, and
to make the best choices we can—

and to leave the outcomes to you.

After all, your grace and our faith are important, too.
