a-Lenten-prayer-a-day, day 21, Friday, March 24, 2017

my-hands-2-27-17Note: As a personal, spiritual discipline, I write a prayer for each of the forty days of Lent; each petition focusing on a theme, truly, relating to a care or concern weighing on my mind and heart, at times, vexing my soul and spirit…

On waiting and persevering in prayer: O Jesus, Word of God, Word of Life, continuously, rhythmically, I call out, I cry out to You with every pulsation, exhalation, and contemplation; and I, as my heart for the next beat, my lungs for the next breath, my mind for the next thought, wait for You, trusting, by faith that as Your Word stands forever,[1] that as You are forever, You will answer. Amen.


[1] My reference to Matthew 24.35: Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.”

  1. Paul,

    Though I’m reading this a day late, I’m grateful for this prayer. When I’m too exhausted to pray I try to force myself by focusing on each breath as I say the words I pray. Even in times I don’t feel like praying I know that God is Forever!!

    Much love,
