A prayer for wisdom

Faithful God,
we trust in your promise that the darkness so often contains treasures:
maybe not of our choosing, or initially inviting;
maybe lacking the shine and allure of other more obvious treasure.

May we have the wisdom to dig deep,
to slow our days, to sift our diaries,
to make the space to spot the hidden,
to explore and appreciate all that you have for us.

Help us to see life afresh through your eyes,
to appreciate its darkness and light, its dirt and beauty,
and to be so much more deeply aware
of the treasury of your overflowing love. Amen. 

Leslie Newton, District Chair, Yorkshire North and East District
