I just finished four weeks of travel for work. Thank you for giving me time to come home each weekend to sleep in my own bed. You know I get much better sleep at home than on the road.
So the concept that God is all-knowing can be rather disturbing. I believe that’s true, even though I don’t understand all the implications of that.
Let’s start there. God knows all my thoughts, both good and bad, both memorable ones and forgotten fleeting ideas. My thoughts and feelings are known to God already, like I’m an open book. God knows the beginning and the end, because He is outside of time. You know my future and You will care for me better than the birds and the flowers. That’s what your word this says.
Oh God, it’s a terribly broken world. We are experiencing way too many terrible mass shootings in recent months. Truly, even one is too many. But when we are seeing and reading about several of them in the news, as if it were a regular yet random occurrence, something has gone terribly wrong.
Prayer: I confess that I’m a better starter than I am a finisher. As I’m turning the corner, as I’m just past the halfway point of this prayer blog project, I can tell, and you can probably tell, that I am losing momentum, and losing steam.
But you know what, all is not lost.
Prayer: I think there is no fear of redundancy to say this. I thank you God for the day, each day, and in particular, for the past week. It’s good to make for some time to pause and to pray on this blog. I haven’t quite settled on the term to describe this prayer-blogging. That’ll be my working term for now, until something else surfaces and resonates.
