A Prayer for Wednesday, September 30, 2015


O God,

We say the word a lot.

“When I finish this project . . .”
“When I graduate . . .”
“When I save some money . . .”
“When I get a better job . . .”
“When I retire . . .”
“When I die . . .”

When we use “when” like
that, we are looking ahead.

We are anticipating the future.

Let our every use of “when”
in that way be an expression
of our hope in you.

Whenever we say it in such
a context, let it be a prayer that
we will entrust our future to you.

Let it be a statement of faith
that our lives are in your hands.
