1-30-05 Oh God, I feel so distracted tonight. I want to read the psalms, the Caring Ministry book, and pray, but my thoughts are scattered. I have a vague sense of unease.
1-31-05 I come to you, O God. Recognize me. Know my heart. Teach me to pray. speak, to me through the Holy Spirit. Make me a piece of your limitless stained glass. Shine through me. Help me to understand. Change me in any way you will. I am yours completely. You know the cries of my heart.
