Hump Day Prayers
Dear Lord, a friend refers to being a "persistent" more than a "consistent" Christian. We acknowledge that consistency is not our strong suit. We may even fear that claiming consistency will make us seem holier-than-thou and more "together" than we really are. But "persistency" means that, frail and forgetful as we are, we do know your blessings, we do know the right way, and we strive to walk in it. Keep doing as you do, reminding us of our discipleship, sending good (or perhaps annoying) people into our lives to teach us, forgiving our sins (which may be both persistent and consistent!), and showing in our lives your deep love and compassion and mercy and patience as we make life's journey the journey of faith and witness. In Christ's name we pray. Amen.
(The idea of "Hump Day Prayers" came from my college friend's blog "Le Padre Ver Livre," http://jimkane.wordpress.com.)
