Prayer for Traveling Mercies

Arizona SnowBy Stephen W. Hiemstra

Merciful Father,

All praise and honor be yours,

for you are a God of the journey–

one that walks with us on life’s long march.

You never tire of the pace or complain of the company,

yet we do constantly–forgive our impatience,

our boredom when the slope is steep and

the weather most challenging.

We give thanks for your cheerful companionship and

constant encouragement,

especially when we are undeserving and bad company.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

remember those afflicted by hurricanes and fires and poor health and

offer us traveling mercies that we might enjoy a restful journey and

return home safely.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

Prayer Journey

Arizona SnowBy Stephen W. Hiemstra

Precious Savior,

Stay with me this morning

as the snow is all around and

I am not sure where to go.

Is it snow or is it just the morning fuzz in my eyes

fuzz that seems to take hold of me and hem me in

until I shake it off in the gym

Stay with me this afternoon

as I wander from task to task and from chat to chat.

Deepen my thoughts.

Raise my awareness.

Help to become a better companion.

Someone helpful on the journey, not someone just taking up space.

Stay with me this evening

as my strength flags and

my desire to push on grows extreme.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

grant me that strength

and insights to create and cherish and share

before the night takes its toll

and I fade with the light.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
