A Prayer for Monday, August 15, 2016


O God,

Sometimes we wonder why things happen.

You gave us minds to wonder and ponder, so it’s natural that we ask such questions.

We thank you for the answers we find, tentative though they must be.

Regardless of why things happen, they do, and we must live in that reality.

So as we ponder and wonder, help us to keep moving forward, to live life for all it’s worth, and to trust that you are working your purposes out.

It’s often hard to complete the sentence, “This is happening because …”

It’s usually easier to complete the sentence, “This is happening, so …”

Help us act on the “so” even as we wonder about the “why.”
