Pillow Prayers 5

Holy Helper, I’m in need of your Assistance.  Today, I’ll have to make many decisions.  Life is risky, and that scares me.  Yet I’m aware that You redeem our mistakes.  Knowing that’s the case should take some of the threat out of my choices . . . yet I waver.

. . .

Holy Healer, I know pain is a teacher, but do we need such a severe instructor?

. . .

Alpha, today is a new beginning.  This page of my life is still clean.  Help me not to scribble meaninglessly all over such a precious gift.

. . .

Breath at Daybreak, resuscitate my courage to enter the demand-strewn path ahead.  Help me not to pick up problems before they materialize.  When I hit a dead end, help me not to camp out there.  When I encounter a difficult person, help me not to join their fraternity. . . .  Breathe on me that I might rise up righteous from having been in Your presence.

    Deeply moving…I am praying this prayer now before my head reaches my pillow.
