A Prayer for Saturday, August 1, 2015

Signs (Part Three)

O God,

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

Help us to notice and to heed
the signs that tell us that we
need to slow down because there’s
a curve or an intersection ahead.

We need to slow down for our own safety;
we don’t want to run off the road or be
surprised by people coming from a different direction.

We need to slow down for the safety of others;
we don’t want to endanger someone else because
we don’t heed a warning that our path is about

to stop being straight
or that it could be
impacted by someone else.

The road is not straight.
We need to watch for the curves.

The road has intersections.
We need to watch for other people.

Help us to deal with the road as it really is.

Remind us to approach it with caution …
