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 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 . . .

In Times of Struggle

“I’m fine”
We tell ourselves
We say to others
We pretend with You

But God, You know our struggles
over money, love, meaning, and more

God, be with us
in our struggle
in our seeking
and in our peace
