Yesterday my friend and pastor Steve Wiens recommended three prayers for Holy Week this year:
1. God, reveal where I’m enslaved and set me free.
2. God, reveal where I’m wandering, and help me remember my covenant.
3. God, reveal where I’m hidden and help me to see.
While thinking about the value of praying these prayers these quotes from Tilden H. Edwards came to mind:
Some of us are more naturally night people or morning people. Our situations further influence what time is best to set aside.

Sometimes people — myself included — complicate life needlessly.
Yesterday my friend Steve Wiens reminded me of an Anne Lamott’s acronym W.A.I.T. I’ll explain what it means in a moment, but you’ll — pardon the pun — have to wait.
Lamott’s most recent book “Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son’s First Son” describes the challenge she faced, especially in the beginning, as she tried to find a balance between helping and hampering her teenage son who was suddenly faced with an unplanned pregnancy.
