(sabbath) Off-Guard. #write31days

Lord, catch me off guard today.
Surprise me with some moment of
beauty or pain.
So that at least for the moment
I may be startled into seeing that you
are here in all your splendor,
Always and everywhere,
Barely hidden,
Beneath,
Beyond,
Within this life I breathe. ~Frederick Buechner

It’s Sunday, and I’m savoring the prayers of others today – and sharing my favorites with you each week. I encourage you to whisper them, shout them, share them. Know that I’m praying for you today, and if you need anything, send a note my way! 


Last year, I shared the stories about pictures I’ve taken. This year during the month of October, I’m opening up my journal and sharing prayers. They’re not eloquent or poetic – they’re simple honest talks with God. Some prayers are joyful and some are screams. Some are said in the morning and some at night. It’s my hope the words might help someone else find the words.
