“A Sunday Prayer”

Lord,

In the stillness of the morning, I give You thanks. In the busyness of the mid-day, I give You thanks. In the serenity of the evening, I give You thanks.

When I experience life’s best moments, I give You thanks. When life is most painful, I give You thanks. When I move through the mundane, I give You thanks.

Yes, I give You thanks because You are my Salvation. You are my Hope. You are my Potter.  

But I want more.

So help me sweep aside the clutter in my life so I may see You even more clearly. Enable me to grow a softer soul to welcome You even more deeply. Grow my compassion exponentially so I can care for Your people more faithfully.

I pray this in the strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
