We are feeling a little fragile, some of us,
from solving big problems,
from facing the same small challenge one hundred times in a row,
from wanting to rest from trying to focus and finding that it’s harder than we thought,
from wanting to be normal and discovering that things never were.
Today may we find courage for the big problems, wisdom for the repeated small challenges, rest and focus and peace.
May we give up nostalgia and accept the next moment as a new opening for your power and our competency.
May we delight in serving people.
Like you did.
From God. We Still Need You: A Year of Pandemic Prayer and Practice from a Hospital Chaplain
One thought on “A prayer for when we are feeling fragile”
I needed that prayer (and reminder) this morning. Thanks Jon!
