A Snow Day Prayer

Last night at Centering Prayer, we were discussing staying centered while Facing the News, a difficult task these days. Here’s a prayer I rewrote/adapted from “A Prayer for the Morning,” BCP p. 461. The word “persisted” has been in this week’s news; I think “persistent” is an apt adjective to describe God’s grace, that continually seeks us out and doesn’t quit! Have a blessed snow day, and special blessings on those who must go in to work to support our common life.

In Christ,


This is another day, O Lord. I don’t know what it will bring forth, but make me ready for whatever it may be. Through your persistent grace, help me to bear Christ’s image within myself; to bear witness to Christ’s love in the world; and to bear the sufferings of others, willingly, bravely, and with compassion. Make these words more than words, and guide me by your Holy Spirit. Amen.
