Prelude to a decision

Luke 6:12-16

Prayer for the day:
Lord of both the sunrise and sunset, we seek you in the nighttime that we may come to see the day. In our prayers we seek to understand your ways, longing to know how we might live more faithfully from day to day. As we pray ourselves into your light we know our decisions may not make sense to those around us. Grant us courage to do what others say cannot be done. Give us your Spirit that we might see your path before us. Amen.

Question for reflection:

As you seek to discern God’s work around you, how do you pray?

~ Josh Brockway, Director for Spiritual Life and Discipleship

One thought on “Prelude to a decision

  1. Hey, Josh. I found your prayer serendipitously apropos to a decision I made yesterday. It reminds me of a prayer by Amy Gall Ritchie (Bethany Seminary): “Wondrous God of many paths, I know you are moving me. But where? How? I do not know… Holy Companion of way and next, thank you for being at my side.” Amen!
