Tuesday Prayer for 2/5/19

Inspired by Luke 5:1-11

Dear God:

I look for you, the most,

when I’m doing other things.

When I am feeling overwhelmed or failing or lost

I whisper

“Oh God…”


And I don’t even always know

how much

I mean it.

It’s like my pacing when I’m winded or

my tight shoulders when I’m afraid

or my stomach grumbling when I’m hungry.

It’s a reflexive prayer.

My heart speaks.

“Oh God…”


And then…


(take one step), you whisper back.

(rest one more minute.

take a real breath.


be present,

be present,

be present.

this is all real.

you are real.)
