  • Belonging To You

    What would I do without you? Where would I go, east or west, north or south? I’d be lost in a world cold and lonely at best; Wandering, and confused by unrest. When suddenly I hear your tender voice, “Rejoice and be glad for you belong to me.” Belonging to you, Lord. Yes, belonging to […]

  • Breath of God

    Prayer about the Holy Spirit Dear Heavenly Father, as a child I was afraid of suffocating. My older sister would come up behind me, covering my nose and mouth with her hands, watching me squirm and squeal. I was a reluctant swimmer, cautious about putting my head under water, always fearful I’d drown. Even now, […]

  • He Has Risen

     Prayer for Easter       Dear Lord, every Easter card shows flowers blooming, bright sunshine, and smiling disciples. But it wasn’t that way, was it, Lord. It was chilly and dark when the women went to the tomb. In their scarves they carried gums and spices to undo the abuse and torture your body had suffered two […]

  • Prayer for Palm Sunday

    Prayer for Palm Sunday   Dear Heavenly Father—I wonder what it was like for Jesus on that Palm Sunday so very long ago. All the crowds cheering and praising him. Streets crowded with followers, shouting his name, some trying to out-yell the others, so caught up in the frenzy of adoration. The donkey, just as Jesus […]

  • I’m Angry

    Dear Heavenly Father–all of us must go through the shared experience of coping with COVID-19.  Friends have various methods of surviving. Some are bored, binge watching Netflix or immersing themselves in video games to escape reality. They stare out the windows mindlessly, and when I speak with them on the phone, they sigh, overwhelmingly weary. […]

  • The One Presence We Need

    Dear Heavenly Father, these are desperate times. When crises happen, we find solace and comfort in the presence of others—they hug and hold us, they remind us of their love and caring, they provide for us a tangible symbol of your presence. But now, that source of comfort has been denied. Not only is touch […]
