Simple Sign

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Tonight, I am full of uncertainties: rushing water, rocks and loosened stones. Above me, stars reach connecting pieces of my scattered life, forming constellations of doubt. But when all is quiet, I hear the creek pulsing outside my […]

You Know

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Only You can say what I need. I think I know:  this job, that house, this person that I say I love. But only You can say what I need. I do know what I want: to trust […]

Light in the Depths

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Down here where only the lantern-fish swim, too deep for sun to penetrate, I see a glint. It is You, reaching for me through the churning seas, a hand to pull me back to the surface and into […]

Pray in Many Ways

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer I pray when I am fearful. I pray when I am in need. I sing praise to You. I lift up my hands, my heart, my soul. Please take me beyond myself and help me recognize the prayers […]

The Word

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer There are words for what I am… words that describe someone who shatters connections with her anger, injuring strangers and loved ones alike, as she indulges her selfishness time and again. There are words for what I am. […]

Showing Up

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Just when I thought You’d forgotten all about me, You show up out of the blue. A message, a flower, a guide. Something speaks to me and it says You. I bet You’ve been there all along, and […]

Broadcast

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Help me silence the relentless roar of newscasters and fanatics. So much of what we hear each day seeks to separate us from one another. I watch the news because I want to know what is going on […]

Radiant Morning!

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer What a wild burst of energy today! I woke this morning to Your beautiful sunlight, to Your blue skies, and a world of possibility! I am motivated. I am ready. I am Yours. Let’s take this day together! […]

Segues

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Impossible, he called me. In fact, I said, I am quite possible. Just not very likely. I told him, you disagree with everything I say. No I don’t, he said. My husband and I never argued. That would […]

Prism

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Refractions of light from a prism: a heterogeneous, multi-faceted rainbow, splitting the spectrum. Transparency separating the light into its component elements. It’s not the brightest, fastest, or keenest ray that makes the enchantment happen, but it strikes the […]

With Me

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Here beside You, I am known. You have the words I cannot find. You know the truths I will not speak. You offer me peace I thought was out of reach. You are my warmest companion, my perfect […]

Urban Dweller

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Among skyscrapers and city streets, You are here. I sense You in sun hot pavement, glinting glass and rumbling buses. When I take the train, I see You in the faces of Your children– Young and old, men […]

The Process

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer I think of myself as diamond, perhaps pure gold. Maybe my life is an antique vase, unique, precious, and rare. Consider the point it which they all began. Think of the process each went through. Each test of […]

Trust the Connections

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer When and where I will connect with You isn’t something I can predict, yet I judge when and where others will make these connections. Only with You can I lead without pushing, wait without impatience and give others […]

Thursday, End in Sight

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Where has the week gone? I see suddenly the approach of the finish line, and yet my to-do list still looms large. Please still my need to rush. Help me take it one job at a time, a […]

Music Within

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer I want my life to ring, to surge like a cello, deep and moving graceful and resonant— the sound of Your voice when you speak to me. I hear little songs in my mind of Your promises. They […]

From the Inside to the Outside

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Let me know Your will, Your hearts desire, and my own. Train me; prune me in the faith life, that I may bear fruit pleasing to You. Inside, show me how to love unconditionally, free to express Your […]

Small Wonders

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer I praise You for the tiny glories I am often too busy to see: the irregular scallop of a maple leaf, the impossible yellow of a dandelion, the perfection of untrammeled snow. For the scrap of sunlight the […]

Career Girl

posted by Prayables

Daily Prayer Everybody who works here tells a story with their clothes. Some have on suits; I’m wearing a uniform. Make me proud of myself and what I do as I go to work each day. Let the people I […]

Work in Progress

posted by Prayables

Sometimes I wonder what I can teach my son. I can’t even help him with his homework anymore. Then, when I think he’s not listening, I realize he’s picked up my bad habits. Make me aware of my impact. Let […]

Known

posted by Prayables

There is no part of me You cannot see. You know my guilt, joy, my fear and my hope. Your knowledge of my secrets frees me from the weight of them. Your knowledge of my soul brings me closer to […]

Ready and Willing

posted by Prayables

I fall short, but You are my help. I am no angel, but I look to You. I am not strong, but You are unshakable. I may not be perfect, but I am willing. For in my weakness, I have […]

Language of Love

posted by Prayables

Thanks be to You for semi-colons, for m-dashes, ellipses, and commas. Glory be in the languages of Earth, in Morse code and Braille, in Swahili and Portuguese. You made us social beings, then gave us the gift that binds, that […]

Hotline to Heaven

posted by Prayables

You have to admit: You made me mouthy, gave me big dreams and great expectations. I even carry a portable soapbox with me in case I need to vent. But whatever I need to say, and however I express it, […]

Coal into Diamond

posted by Prayables

It takes years of pressure to turn a piece of coal into a sparkling diamond. Thank You for second chances, and open hearts. Allow me a chance to grow in faith. Surround me with light and hope as we walk […]
