A Prayer for My Weekend

A Prayer for My Weekend

O God, gather me

to be with you

as you are with me.

Keep me in touch with myself,

with my needs,

my anxieties,

my angers,

my pains,

my corruptions,

that I may claim them as my own

rather than blame them on someone else.

 

O Lord, deepen my wounds

into wisdom;

shape my weaknesses

into compassion;

gentle my envy

into enjoyment,

my fear into trust,

my guilt into honesty.

 

O God, gather me

to be with you

as you are with me.

 

Ted Loder, Guerrillas of Grace
