We Do Not Want For Anything

February 9, 2015

God of consolation,

How lovely are the ways you clear for us
and the respite you bring us on our spiritual journeys.

You give us our daily bread, water that lasts
and food that eternally sustains. We do not
want for anything.

But this world is dark and enticing,
clouding our vision and leading us
astray—we too often trust our own orientation.

May your Spirit come and guide us as water and fire,
that we may live out our baptism and our call
to be disciple makers.

Amen

Thomas
