A Prayer for a Sense of History   Leave a comment

Historia (Allegory of History), by Nikolaus Gysis (1892)

Give us, O Lord, a sense of history.  Forgive our preoccupation with the present moment.  Teach us to recognize your hand in the stories of peoples and nations.  Help us to be thankful for evidence of our loving eye upon our lives.  Encourage us for the coming days in the knowledge that your touch still has its ancient power; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

–From Chalice Worship (1997), of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
