A Prayer for Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Thirty-First Day of Easter

O God,

We wonder about so much
because there is so much
we can’t know.

Help us to wonder
even more;
let us marvel
over the wonder of you,
over the wonders of your Creation,
over the wonders of your grace.

We worry about so much
because we can’t see
into the future.

Help us to worry
much less;
let us instead trust in you
do what we can
to address problems
in a constructive way.

We wish for so much
because we can’t see
the value in
what we already have.

Help us to wish
less and to wish for less;
help us be content with what we have,
grateful that our needs are fulfilled,
to work to meet
good and noble goals
rather than
wishing that they
could be achieved.
