Providence Prayer

Abba, thank you that on this sojourn
of thousands of miles
and multiple flights
and buses
and train,
of dozens of pilgrims
and scores of meals
we haven't missed a flight
or lost a bag
or gotten lost
or suffered a theft
or even gotten sick.
Thank you for safety,
and all the things
that could have gone wrong
and inconvenienced us even slightly,
but didn't.

Your great kindness
has been a great blessing.
