Prayer of the Day: Your New Worlds Amid Our Anxiety
God, we keep inventing ourselves and our underneath selves turn out to be less than adequate and we wish we were other than we are. We juggle your good purposes and our hidden yearnings and try to serve two masters, try to live two narratives, try to live two dreams, and we are weary. Gives us patience and stead fastness as we process the ragged edges of our lives. Amen.
