By Stephen W. Hiemstra
I give thanks for your presence on cloudy days,
when the rain soaks through my clothes and the sun shines dimly.
I cherish your presence most when I am cold and
can’t remember what it was like to be warm.
Maybe the sun really shines, but I can’t see it;
Maybe the clouds don’t so last long, but I can’t see it.
Be especially near.
In the power of your Holy Spirit, protect those I love from my stumbling;
guard my heart from besetting fears and temptations that overwhelm;
cover my mind that I do not sin.
That the sun will truly shine one day.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
Cloudy Day Prayer
