The prayer of simplicity

You want simplicity? Or do you just think that you do?

Give us each day our daily bread.
Luke 11.3 NET

Pray this prayer for simplicity. Exercise this faith for simplicity.

Here is minimalism at its finest. This supplication is the essence of peeling away all the layers of self-sufficiency. Here we lay aside the material comforts that provide us with a false sense of security.

Here is the confession that God secures our future, that we are ignorant and helpless and dependent. No arrogance, no pretension, no smugness. No hypocrisy, no bravado.

Pray this prayer and go on your simple way rejoicing.

J. Randal Matheny
