Prayers for an Ordinary Tuesday

Prayers for an Ordinary Tuesday

Dear God, 

Thank you for another day

in my rising

help me to see you

in my waking

help me to feel you

in my movement

help me to trust you. 


Fill my day with love

greetings from friends

moments to breathe deeply

nourishing food

meaningful conversation. 


Today is another day, 

but nothing is ever ordinary with you –

your mercy shines in the beauty of a sunset, 

the ripening of a fresh tomato, the splash of ocean water

your heartbeat can be heard in children’s laughter, 

the ripple of waves, the birds’ song, the toll of a bell. 


Today, may I be open to what lies ahead –

your presence with me

blessing me

showering me with mercy

redeeming and renewing me

today and always.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
