Simple Prayer

Ten K
Lansing, Michigan, 1983

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Gracious father,

For the simple things in this life we offer you praise and give you the glory. Simple things like sunshine and the rain that waters the land bringing forth much fruit in its season.

Forgive us Lord for choosing to be complicated find ways around your simple truths that tire us and wear us down, much as we would deny it.

But we give thanks that when the smoke and dust of our lives clear you are still with us and for us.

In the power of your Holy Spirit, heal our brokenness, our divisions, and simple stubbornness, that you might draw us closer to you, day by day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
