I Tremble on the Edge of a Maybe

I Tremble on the Edge of a Maybe 389 400 Andrew Hicks

Another prayer from my favorite book of prayers, Guerrillas of Grace: Prayers for the Battle. This is entitled “I Tremble on the Edge of a Maybe.” My prayer about my sharing of this prayer is that anyone who is hesitant to take the plunge into the future that God is calling them into will run, jump, and canon ball into the depths of the mystery.

O God of beginnings,

as your Spirit moved

over the face of the deep

on the first day of creation,

Move with me now

in my time of beginnings,

when the air is rain-washed,

the bloom is on the bush,

and the world seems fresh

and full of possibilities,

and I feel ready and full.

I tremble on the edge of a maybe,

a first time,

a new things,

a tentative start,

and the wonder of it lays its finger on my lips.

In silence Lord,

I share now my eagerness

and my uneasiness

about this something different

I would be or do;

and I listen for your leading

to help me separate the light from the darkness

in the change I seek to shape

and which is shaping me.
