Prayers from the Hebrides: Watching

God in my sleeping, God in my waking,

God in my watching, God in my hoping.

I’m sure it wasn’t the original intention, but asking God to be in my watching brings screen time to mind. How would my life change if I allowed God into that time? Would I fill my time with violent images, insulting speech, and all the ads that come along for the ride?

Why is it that I invite God in my watching when I am reading, working, walking, and weeding – but I haven’t done the same for my screen time?

With cold weather on its way and a pandemic keeping me at home, it’s time to send God that invitation.
