A Prayer for Wednesday, October 1, 2014


O God,

There is so much that we do not know; no matter how much reading, studying, observing, listening, and living we do, there will always be more that we don’t know than that we do know. Keep us aware of that truth and use it to keep us appropriately humble.

And yet there is still so much that we do know; there are facts and realities of which we are very well aware and there are situations and problems about which there are things we can do. Keep us aware of those truths and use them to keep us appropriately responsible.

Protect us from the pride that causes us to act like we know more than we know.
Protect us from the sloth that keeps us from acting on what we do know.
Protect us from the willful ignorance that keeps us from growing in what we know.

And in all things help us to keep growing in our knowledge of how best to love you and of how best to love each other.
