A Prayer for Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Hundreds of choices I will make today, O Lord--
--some I will make after much thought, others I will make without a thought;
--some will seem large, others will seem small;
--some will appear significant, others will appear insignificant.

But they will all matter, because in each case I could choose another way--maybe even many other ways--and another way chosen could lead to a different outcome.

I do not ask that I always make the right choice or the best choice for experience and history and honesty tell me that I will not, that I cannot.

I only ask that by your Spirit that is in me that my motivations--the forces that drive my choices--be the same as those that drove those of the Lord Jesus, that I be compelled by grace and love and mercy and obedience to choose what I choose this day.
