Today’s Prayer 10 01 13
I woke from a dream at 2 AM. Blasted out of a rocket ship and hurled into space, I landed standing on a ledge over a deep chasm where I could not see the bottom. I had to hang on to the rock to keep from falling. There was a small hole at my face so I could look up into the sky.
I have some idea, God, why my mind is defragging like this….
It’s October. There was much turmoil for many, including me, this past Summer. Today, it feels like there will continue to be, what with the government shutting down and other storms wailing here and there.
Help me hang on to the small ordinary things — let them be the rock.
Continue to comfort us with news of friends who have seen the light, received your blessing of a second chance, and are giddy with enthusiasm even in the face of tragedy.
Bless our leaders — they need it.
