Prayer on a Tuesday

O Lord, Please remind me...

That not everyone has ears to hear,

That if I'm not mindful, I could easily run out of pearls
before the world runs out of swine,

That spiritual enlightenment doesn't come by assent to reason,

That I, too, sometimes walk unknowingly in darkness and resist the light,

That my strange tongues often need interpretation,

And, That in spite of my frustrations, You make everything beautiful in its time.

Open my eyes to the beauty and simplicity of spirit and grace,

And open my heart to rest in You.

Lord, in Your mercy...
