Prayer: Creation


Good morning, Lord. I hear Your creation around me, and it is good. Please help me be at peace about the days ahead. I am nervous and struggling with loneliness. I know that You know what I need and pray that You grant me Your grace. Amen.

Holli’s Notes:
Emmaus Walk Collection II

I wrote this prayer on early Friday morning during my Emmaus Walk while I was waiting for my cabinmates to join me. I walked around the campground and the sound of birds and the fresh air really comforted me. This was a new form of writing for me, and I’m hoping to go back to it from time to time.
