A Prayer for Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Wednesday of Holy Week/Thirty-Seventh Day of Lent

O God,

When we think—when we really think—of all that you have done and of how far you have gone to reveal yourself to us, to enter into relationship with us, and to be with us, we are amazed.

How can we do other than respond to your great acts of making yourself known to us and of showing your love for us with our grateful efforts to open our lives up to you and to respond to your love and commitment with our love and commitment?

And yet we so often fail not only to think constantly of you but to think of you at all.

Forgive us for our ingratitude and for our inattention.

Help us to remember that you are here with us; help us to celebrate your love for us; help us to follow the promptings of your grace and the leadership of your Spirit; help us to think more about you so that we can move toward thinking always about you.
