I didn’t know where to start with God this morning. So I just wrote a prayer about what was on my heart.
Prayer – For crossing into a new way
Lord, my uncharted path,
That leads me past each one of my fears,
Who day by day stare at me,
Wanting me to back down, retreat,
Into a world of safe choices, easy living,
It would be so easy, today, to surrender,
But, my heart, my restless heart,
Doesn’t settle in this world,
Everything it gives – a junk food binge
Only leaves a hunger for more.
Be with my faithful path today,
This path of simple obediences,
Serving today, here, not over there!
I ask now for a bigger dream –
That I won’t settle for easy satisfactions,
I ask that this sadness I feel –
Will remind me of how beautiful love is,
I ask that I will stop to listen to you –
So I don’t forget our conversations,
I ask that I will not give in to easy temptations –
I want my hunger to be for Eternity,
I ask that I will be patient –
Waiting isn’t one of my strong points.
Now, as this day begins,
I trust it to you, completely,
Knowing that this new way,
Is your way,
Thank you for reminders, Like
how a new day begins,
How a conversation with you,
Starts with prayer,
It always starts with prayer,
I pray this new way, will be your way.
