A Prayer for Tuesday, December 13, 2016


O God,

Will you come to me even if I won’t let you?

Will you come to me even if I don’t want you to?

Will you come to me in spite of myself?

Maybe you will. Maybe that’s the way grace works.

But maybe my asking of the questions reveals

that I know I should let you come to me,
that I want to want you to come to me, and
that I would like my life to be open to your coming.

Maybe it’s best if your grace and my willingness work together.

So Lord, let me let you come to my life in whatever ways you want to do so.
