Insignificant God

A prayer for Tuesday in Holy Week

Mysterious, pervasive and persuasive God,
ever present in our lives,
yet seemingly insignificant and ineffectual.
Underwhelming when we want to be impressed,
inexplicable when we seek the answers to life’s questions,
your foolishness is wiser than our best wisdom
and your vulnerability disarms our bravado.
Teach us how to follow and serve your Christ,
to surrender ourselves into your purposes
like a grain of wheat that falls into the earth,
dies,
and bears much fruit. Amen.
