In Charge: a Prayer

Holy Spirit,

Let me tell you, it’s a good thing you are in charge,



I do not want to be in charge of all of this.

The things that I am in charge of are–

to put it lightly


And in a time such as this

I never know

what to do next

or what will change

(Jesus take the wheel)

So anyway back to

You being in charge

and how very VERY good that is

Because you know how to get things done–

with the eagerest of resources,

and the clumsiest of servants.

So here I am, meager and clumsy.

Ready to serve,

let me know what to do next

I pray.
