Be Patient, Be Prayerful

Apr 14, 2021
Be patient, be prayerful

Reflect

Even while the world is at a standstill, our minds can race. But it’s in the quieter moments where we find the space to breathe—and pray.


Pray

Dear God,
I want my life to return
to some kind of normalcy,
but I know that you
are 
the true timekeeper.
I ask for patience
as we wait this out,
and for the presence of mind
to be hopeful.
Grace me with a single moment
of calm this day
to center myself
and listen
for your voice.
Guide me to a place
where I may not strain
to hear it.
Amen.


Act

For a few moments today quiet your phone, put away your laptop, and turn off your television. Close your eyes and offer this prayer of thanks to a patient God.

This prayer is exactly what I needed today. I do struggle with impatience. This reminds me to calm myself.
