A Momma Prayer
An afternoon prayer to fight discouragement when I realize that I'm washing dishes so that we can eat off them in an hour and sweeping floors so we can walk over them in minutes:
Lord, let the relentlessness of my job remind me of your relentless grace. You never grow so weary that you cannot forgive my sin. You never throw up your hands and storm out for alone time. You are gracious and merciful; slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love. Great is your faithfulness.
