A Prayer for Monday, August 3, 2015

Signs (Part 4)

O God,

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

Help us to pay close attention
to the “Stop” signs.

Help us to know

when we’ve worked enough,
when we’ve tried enough,
when we’ve worried enough,
when we’ve talked enough, and
when we’ve wandered enough

—so it’s time to stop.

Don’t let us forget how necessary
it is for us to do all we can and
then to leave the rest to you.

Help us to remember that
our part is up to us—

but that it’s not all up to us.
