God always surprises us!
- Pope Francis
I could use a few surprises, Lord!
Surprise me with your showing up
in places and in people
where I least expect to find you...
Surprise me with the strength that's mine
and all the grace you'll give
to help me through this day...
Surprise me with a deeper faith,
a greater trust in you
and your unfailing presence...
Surprise me with your wisdom, Lord,
to know what's true from false
and to do the next right thing...
Surprise me with your mercy and
the peace that comes from pardon,
the gift of starting over...
Surprise me with your comfort
in the time we spend together
while you listen to my prayer...
Surprise me with a challenge
and your trust in me to do
what I thought I never could...
Surprise me with a brave heart,
unafraid to live this day:
a heart for new beginnings...
Surprise me in whatever ways
I need to be surprised today
by love, by grace, by you...
Just surprise me, Lord, amaze me,
dazzle and astound me
in ways that you know best...
