Pause and Pray

Just an Ordinary Day

We sometimes feel a lack of spirit in the overwhelming necessity of everyday tasks. May this prayer help you invite God into all repetitive duties.


Dear God, I long to rediscover your presence
in the ordinary in my life.
I often rush toward the things I think will bring more meaning,
forgetting you are here even as I rinse the dishes,
or drive the same roads to work yet again.
Guide me toward remembering I can find you
in the fabric 
of all things in my life.


As you perform an ordinary task today look for God's presence in it.
