praying again

Our God,

We pray again—
bringing this week’s particular circumstances to You,
us in those specific circumstances to You,
inviting You into the details of our living now.
Not sure what all that means,
but sure that it’s important—

not thinking You need to be brought up to date,
as if You didn’t know,
but that there’s something important to the consistency
of our acknowledgement
that we need You-with-us—
in the very midst of it all—

believing that transformation is always Your work,
that hope and possibility are Your gifts,
that courage is our sense of Your presence,
and that faith is our way through

in Jesus’ name,

amen.
