A Prayer for Friday, October 2, 2015

When (Part Three)

O God,

We use the word often.

When we say

“When I eat a hamburger” or
“When I walk the dog” or
“When I read my Bible” or
“When I buy gas” or
“When I pray,”

we mean “Whenever”
we do those things.

The assumption is that whatever
we are talking about is something
that we do regularly or routinely.

So when we use the word in that way,
let each utterance of it be a prayer that,
even in the routine and regular events of life,
we will be aware of your presence and
alert to the possibilities of the moment.
