Dear God,

We are praying in the midst of things. as we finish our May-days and looks towards impending June we find ourselves overwhelmed. There’s politics and national disasters and I still have to get groceries on the way home. Life just happens. How can I find you in the middle of things? When I don’t even have time to look, how can I pray? This will not be a meditative prayer, that much is clear. But here we are, you are mighty and infinite and can be found in the most mundane of the details, and here am I worrying about how I can pray correctly, as the interruptions that make up my life continue. Lord, sit with me when I need to sit and run with me as I run out the door into life. Be with me, today, whenever I think of it and whenever we need it, and grant moments of breath and life and hope to me, and all those who need it. Let that be my prayer, to you God. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen.
