Wednesday Prayers: Surprise Me

One of my better qualities is resourcefulness.  (I suspect that's related to my less attractive quality of stubbornness.)  

I'm resourceful, but I'm not miraculous.  I can't make wine from water, or get that water from a dry stone.  That means that sometimes I have to throw my hands in the air and just pray, "surprise me."  

For the upcoming year, Oh Lord:  surprise me.

Has God surprised you?  Would you tell me about it, so that I can remember God's creativity and be encouraged by it?


  1. A few years back I heard a Jeuit talk about being aware of the unfolding creation. Later that day I sat on a bench under a tree and God sent a huge variety of song birds to visit me. Unfolding has been how I see my life ever since. Hope today's surprise leads to new paths. Praying for the two of you.

  2. Wonderful. Thank you.
