Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 4/15

Image source

Do you roll your eyes in frustration, Lord,
   when I don't pay attention to you, to your truth,
      to my own common sense?

Would you like to dope slap me, Lord,
   when I miss the obvious choice to make,
      staring me right in the face?

Do you walk away when,
   for the thousandth time,
      I make the same mistake?

No, Lord, you don't...

   you show me again what I've failed to see...
   you look with mercy on me and my foolishness...
   you forgive my sins and give me a fresh start...

Patient, kind and compassionate Lord,
   be gracious to me today as you always are
      and help me grow in your grace...
