During Lent of 2014, I challenged myself to write a 40-word prayer for each day of Lent. While this was not a particularly profound accomplishment, I was fed by the challenge to craft word into a prayers that I felt were true to my understanding of God in my life and the world.
So it’s with this discipline in mind that I am going to keep it up and offer up 40 Word Prayers from time to time. I hope they are helpful to you as they are to me.
Let us pray . . .
God when I see road rage around me
remind me that there may be profound pain behind the rage
prevent me from repaying evil with evil
and allow my spirit to breathe peace
Thanks to folks who have shared their feedback about these prayers. I deeply appreciate your taking the time to contact me and I am humbled by the affirmations offered. Thanks you. Please take some time to the growing list of 40-Word Prayers, share on your social networks using #40wordprayer and, again, thanks you.
