A Prayer for Tuesday, August 5, 2014


O God,

Sometimes we act like children;
sometimes such behavior is a bad thing
sometimes it’s a good thing.

Forgive us for when we behave childishly.

Forgive us

for thinking only of our own needs,
for crying when we don’t get our way,
for believing the world revolves around us,
for making fun of people who are different.

Help us to behave in a more child-like manner.

Help us

to trust you with a child-like trust,
to admire you with a child-like admiration,
to depend on you with a child-like dependency,
to obey you with a child-like obedience.

As we mature
in our faith, let us
move beyond
childish ways
grow in
child-like faith.
