Meet God While You Do Laundry

It’s laundry day! Do you find it a little therapeutic, or is it a dreaded chore? 

Maybe you’re used to tossing clothes in the washer, moving them into the dryer, and then dumping it all in front of the TV where you sit down and mindlessly fold it so you can put it back in your room only to restart the process next weekend. What a mundane task circle we get to live over and over, right? 

Ah! But it doesn’t have to be mundane today (or ever!). We want to invite you to take that mind of yours (and your heart) and engage it in the simple, everyday task of doing laundry. Because we believe you can meet God while you clean (& fold) your clothes. 

Here’s a short prayer we wrote inspired by Psalm 51:7 that we hope helps spark a connection with God as you take on this chore:

“Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow” (Psalm 51:7).

A Prayer for Doing Laundry

Jesus, my redeemer, be with me as I address this daunting pile of dirty clothes. As I fight stubborn stains, I remember how you took my sin-stained heart and wiped it clean. God who makes all things new, these warm and freshly scented clothes straight from the dryer remind me of how your Spirit’s presence is my greatest comfort. God who brings order out of chaos, now that my clothes are laundered, help me find motivation to fold them before they grow wrinkled and stale. Amen.
