God,

Here’s a soggy Sunday prayer,

a sleepy little prayer to say…

Hey God…

I know I’ve been a little scattered of late.

Have you ever felt that way God?

Like your thoughts are a little bit jumble?

And your motivation is a little bit lacking?

And your enthusiasm is a little bit wet?

What do you do God, on soggy Sundays?

Do you nap, or snuggle a pet

Or find a way to affirm that leaves with drips of water can still be beautiful?

Here’s a prayer for all of us who aren’t giving a hundred percent,

but are still, somehow here,

talking to you God.

I’m glad your here to talk to,

and that I am too.

I give thanks for the opportunity to be, just as I am,

and to try not to push. Help me not to push I pray.

Amen.
