So Many Distractions, So Little Time


A Prayer for Those Consumed by Too Much to Do

O God, we confess the obligations of work, family, church and other commitments consume us.    So many distractions, so little time.   But the power of your Presence lies in its expansiveness.   Challenging the limits of our imagination, You push the boundaries of our consciousness – allowing us to yield to the Spirit’s leading.   As your resurrected people, we ask that You remake us each moment and every day ever more in your likeness.   So that liberated once more, may we share your glad tidings and embody your potent grace.   We ask this in Christ’s name.  Amen.

These are dark and corrosive times. As a writer and ordained minister with the United Church of Christ, I use prayer, poetry, reflection, and scripture to re-align our embattled spirits with the uniqueness and urgency of our God-given identity and call.
