A Prayer for Good Care

Another day has passed.
Today, I sought for:
Approval, glory, and control.
Tonight, I’m feeling:
frail, inadequate, and empty.
No surprise there, God.
Though I’ve often blamed you,
thanks for not always giving me
What I’ve asked for.
But we do ask, that you would surprise us.
Surprise us in the morning
with your new mercies –
whether we feel them or not.
