A Prayer for Thursday, July 24, 2014


O God,

We lack precision; we seldom if ever get anything just right, which means that our lives are always imperfect and incomplete. And that means that our lives are always fragmented and messy and challenging.

Thank you.

Thank you for the humility that comes from knowing that we always have a long way to go.

Thank you for the moments when we know that we have made a little progress.

Thank you for the ongoing opportunities we have to keep on trying and to keep on growing.

Thank you for the grace that gives us the freedom to do what we can and to trust you for the rest.

Thank you for the times when we sense that we are at least headed in the right direction.

Thank you for loving us in our incompleteness and for helping us grow toward wholeness.
