SUNDAY PRAYER

the-litany-of-sunday

Dear, Risen Savior, Brother and Friend, Jesus,

I come to you this Sunday after Easter with a heavy heart.  I like many others in this world have grown impatient.  I find myself becoming angry that I can’t be with my family at church.  I long for the taste of your Holy Supper – your body and blood.  I wish I could be in your house to confess my sins and know that you have forgiven them.

Yesterday was a bad day for me.  I’ve been reluctant to write about my real feelings, because I don’t wish to bring others down with me, but I’m tired of this isolation, social distancing and cocooning further into a life without a hug from my granddaughter, my children, my friends.  I don’t want to don a mask when I go shopping.  I’m afraid to go outside, because this is the worse time of year for my allergies and asthma.  I fear that boredom is setting in and making me anxious and fearful. I’m angry that things are so different now.

I should know better.  I should be quiet and wait for your answers.  I should trust that you have this in your hands and I need not be afraid.  Still I am.  I wonder how much longer this will go on.  Will we really be safe once it’s passed?  Will our economy rebound and get back to where it once was?  Will our money run out?  Will we survive?
Will we remain untouched by this illness?  How about those risking their lives for us by serving in the medical field, those who protect us, those who encourage and those who make church possible through electronic means.

As I ponder things, I pray that you bring calm to my heart and mind.  Help me know that all things in life are part of a much greater plan.  Remind me the cost it took for my redemption and that the ransom was paid by you.  Make me realize the gift of another day on this planet.  Thank you for your perpetual care and love for me and my loved ones.    May we all rejoice in the gift of Easter and your resurrection.  Let us know that heaven is waiting for us on the other side of death.  You gave us victory over the grave and took away our sins.  Alleluia and Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. I’ve yet to wear a mask but like you, my allergies are kicked up into high gear.
    Despite being so weary, it has been a blessing to have our little grandkids with us.
    I don’t know how all of this will turn out…but what I do know is that God knows…and truthfully, that is all that matters.

    Hugs now days are like a cold drink of water in 90 temp weather after mowing 3 hours of grass and pasture. The human body was created for touch. Some of us get thirst to get touched.

  3. This is beautiful.. and what must be on the heart of all God’s children affected by this virus. I too am nearing the limits of my patience and I wonder what our lives might be like on the other side of it all. All we can do is rest in Him right now and trust Him for our future. When my heart is troubled I remember that He is still in control and that He has a plan. I pray God blesses you and brings you peace. ❤️

      Thank you Dee. My patience is waning because of all the negative news. We need to start focusing on the good that will come of this. Blessings to you too.
