A Prayer for Tulips

By Stephen W. Hiemstra Tulips 2018

Merciful Father:

Bring on the tulips; I am ready for spring.

Clear out the cobwebs; open the windows; pull back the currents.

Shine your light into the dark recesses of my mind; let me hide in the shadows no more.

I want to plant seeds; I want to watch them grow; I want to live in the sunshine of your love.

In the power of your Holy Spirit, let me enter the garden of your life.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Winter Prayer

Almighty Father,

I praise you for your loving kindness,

which you demonstrated on Calvery with the sacrifice of your son, Jesus Christ,

and your goodness,

which we witness each and every morning in the warmth of the rising sun.

I confess that my own kindness flags too often for mention

and I am neither warm or bright in the morning and sometimes all day.

Thank you, Lord, that I am not the center of the universe and

I am not reminded constantly of my weaknesses and cold disposition.

Thank you, Lord, for the warm house that I live in and the warm people that keep safe.

I pray for warmer weather and the new life of spring,

which heals the body and refreshes the soul.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
