A Prayer for 2019

I crafted a prayer that I tried to pray daily in 2018. Here is my crack at one for 2019 as well:


God of heaven and earth, I ask that you’d help me to be quick to listen and to forgive. May friends, family, and enemies be less likely to walk on eggshells around me this year than in previous years. Help me to breath from the belly instead of from the chest. Help me give generously, even lavishly. Help me to not to have to have the last word. Give me the curiosity of daughter Avery and joy of son Ezra. For Jesus’ sake, Amen.
