We live in a world of constant stimulation. The endless barrage from the 24-hour news cycle, social media posts, streaming programs and so forth, seek to keep our eyes glued at all times. Yet we still get bored. This prayer is for those moments.
God, you are the author of all beauty and majesty.
Your words fashioned the earth and brought life to the word.
Yet on the seventh day you rested.
May I rest in you in my moments of restlessness.
May my moments of boredom be a reminder to seek you above all else.
Chose a time today when you normally seek entertainment. Sit Instead in the restlessness and bored feeling. Offer that uncomfortable silence as a prayer, mindful of God’s presence: the true comfort of your heart.
