A Disturbing Prayer . . .

Lisa Borden of the Lisboa Matrix community said in a recent entry on her weblog that we probably need a major move or house fire every five years to push us out of our comfort zone.

She quotes a prayer by Sir Francis Drake, the first explorer to circumnavigate the earth:
Disturb us, Lord, whenwe are too pleased with ourselves.
When our dreams have come truebecause we dreamed too little.
When we arrived safelybecause we sailed too close to the shore.
This is our prayer for this season.
May God stretch us all beyond where we are now
To pursue His dreams and discover new shores.
