In light of the fact that many of us will be spending more time than usual with family members over the next few days, I thought it’d be appropriate to post a simple but profound prayer I came across again recently. This prayer was written by an anonymous seventeenth-century nun, but it resonates with the predicaments faced by the 21st century housewife, working woman or student more than a woman who had secluded herself from the mundane and worldly. In fact, it’s rather amazing to me just how timeless this prayer is.
It’s my prayer for the holidays and should be the plea of our hearts every other day as well. See if it speaks the cries of your heart.
