Facing the Ordinary

We sometimes feel a lack of spirit in the overwhelming necessity of everyday tasks. May this prayer help you invite God in to all repetitive duties.


Dear God,
I long to rediscover your presence
in the ordinary in my life.
I often rush toward the things I think
will bring more meaning,
forgetting you are here
even as I rinse the dishes,
or drive the same roads to work
yet again.
Guide me toward remembering
I can find You in the fabric
of all things in my life.


What ordinary tasks can you seek God in today?
