The prayer for the week is for quiet confidence and a renewed self-dedication to God, for you and for me. In the Book of Common Prayer, these prayers are separate from one another, but they actually dovetail and complement one another beautifully.

The daisy illustrates today's post because even though it is delicate, it is so very resilient — and our bodies and spirits are like this, too. When we're young our bodies grow and strengthen, but inevitably a physical decline begins — no matter how many Zumba classes we take, weights we lift, or mountains we hike. In 1 Peter 1:24-25 we read: "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of the Lord stands forever. And this is the word that was preached to you."

As we begin this new week, let us rely on the quiet confidence God gives us, and renew our dedication to Him. Let us support one another, and actively seek God's desire for us. What does He have in store for us this week, this day, this hour? Be resilient, be strong, but also be ready to listen to the Holy Spirit, to bend, and to reach out to your fellow travelers.

Let's pray.
O God of peace, You have taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength: By the might of Your Spirit lift us, we pray, to Your presence, where we may be still as You draw our hearts to You. Guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly Yours, utterly dedicated to You; and then use us, we pray, as You will, and always to Your glory and for the welfare of Your people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
