Surprise me

Today, I’m going to give you a prayer for the weekend. I found this and a few others I will be sharing on the chapter pages of a confirmation book by Matthew Kelly that I recently received. I just love this one, because it resonates with what I know of God. Surprise me, startle me, remind me that You are here, because you are so very close no matter what I am doing or where I may be. I love the way he puts it. Enjoy!


“Lord, catch me off guard today. Surprise me with some moment of beauty or pain. So that at least for the moment I may be startled into seeing that you are here in all your splendor, always and everywhere, barely hidden, beneath, beyond, within this life I breathe.”  — Frederick Buechner
