A few months back I heard the most amazing prayer ever:
Surprise me God!
How perfect. Only three words with so much subtext. When I first started saying this in the morning, I started to let go of all my expectations of the day not knowing what will be on the agenda. I also truely accepted every single thing that occurred, whether it was great, terrible, frustrating, or mundane; nothing happens in God’s world by mistake. I was letting go of any control of my will and placing it into the hands of God. This is the simplest and most effective step 3 prayer for me. It can be a little scary sometimes, but always worth it!
Try it out and let me know your experience…or just surprise me 🙂
