A Prayer for Help

“It is so easy for good people to confuse their own work with the work of creation. It is so easy to come to believe that what we do is so much more important than what we are. It is so easy to simply get too busy to grow. It is so easy to commit ourselves to this century’s demand for product and action until the product consumes us and the actions exhaust us, and we can no longer even remember why we set out to do them in the first place.” Joan Chittister

Creator God, help me, please,
To remember
That I am Your child.

Lady Wisdom, help me, please,
To know
That I am an echo of my Creator
And I am more important than what I do.

Redeemer, help me, please,
To avoid
Getting too busy to grow,
Being consumed by products
And exhausted by actions.
Amen
