Prayer

My Father
I have no strength apart from You
You are wisdom, hope, and victory
I have fallen because I deny Your image
You are peace, meaning, and compassion
Help me to abandon the delusion of my own rights
May I see Your image in my neighbor
As You love me, cause me to love others
Create in me the boldness to be different
Vindicate Your name with Your grace

Guide me with the fire of Your word
Accept my wretched self into the bosom of Your forgiveness
Your love, goodness, and grace honors Your name
You are forever perfect
Let me forever dwell in Your presence

    John,

    Found you here through Fr. Stephen’s blog (I didn’t know you had one yourself). Just wanted you to know that I so appreciate the spirit of your posts.

    Peace be with you.
