On days like that, when the words do not come, and their absence makes me feel unappreciated, this little prayer (from my Busy Person's Prayer Book) helps me to put things into perspective.
Whenever I need to be appreciated
Remind me, Father, of your Son
How no one appreciated what He did
Yet he still did what had to be done.
In my self-published book, I have a few dozen of these little prayers. They were all written when I needed something quick and easy to say for daily issues that are likely to repeat themselves.
I think I will begin a Free Prayer Sunday post this weekend, and share them.
Yes, I know I'd love folks to buy the book. And the book has many articles in it to help us deal with prayer and it s issues. But still, I think I will do this.
When I finish those in my book (a few months from now), I'll begin with others that I hope to put into a follow-up book. Or maybe I'll just make an expanded version of the first one. Too early to tell.
