Lent Prayers: A prayer by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Filed under: Prayers & Prayer Themes, Quotable, Guidance, Lent 2007, Lent Prayers — Karen B.

God of the day and of the night, in me there is darkness, but with you there is light. I am alone, but you will not leave me. I am weak, but you will come to my help. I am restless, but you are my peace. I am in haste, but you are the God of infinite patience. I am confused and lost, but you are eternal wisdom and you direct my path; now and for ever. Amen
–Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 1906-1945
