Stay the Course

prayer for the week

As a new week begins, filled with opportunity to serve at work and home, O God, remind us that we are called sometimes to "stay the course."

When we have done all we can to resolve a conflict, create a solution, or understand the actions of family and friends, and still the resolution has not come, help us to simply "stay the course."

In a world where we are not patient and waiting for anything isn't the norm, help us O God, to trust You during the times of uncertainty and confusion. Show us the peace that comes by turning to a power greater than ourselves, and accepting life as it is.

O God, we give this day, and our unresolved, unclear, challenges to your care.


Rev. Al, Chaplain
