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 . . .
Tired Stressed Irritable
There are times when life’s events overcome my best intentions
When I’m tired, give my body rest
When I’m stressed, soothe my soul
When I’m irritable, grant me patience
God, let my mind, body and spirit know your peace.
