A Prayer for Friday, August 7, 2015

Signs (Part 8)

O God,

As we travel down the road, remind
us to pay attention to the signs.

Help us to heed the signs that warn
us of a coming change in direction.

Some tell us that we’re
going to have to bear right

while some tell us that we’re
going to have to bear left.

We’ll get in trouble if we insist
on continuing to go straight.

Give us wisdom to follow the
road as you lay it out before us.

Make us ready to go whichever
way your road leads us.

Help us not to be concerned about whether
following you causes us to go left or right.

Let us be concerned only with following you in
the ways that Jesus showed us are your ways—

the ways of grace, love, mercy, forgiveness,
compassion, service, and sacrifice.
