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 . . .
Prayer for Seasons of Life
When Fall turns to Winter and Winter to Spring
let me embrace the seasons of life
From highs and lows
From joy to sorrow and back again
From birth to breath and life to death
God, make yourself known
