Prayer


Lord,
Make me the sort of person whose heart breaks for the things which break your heart.
May I be one who stands for those who cannot stand,
Who cries out for those who cannot speak for themselves
May I weep where there is pain
Rejoice where there is elation
And celebrate your truth wherever I might find it.
May my life be an example of the new creation put on display.
May I be a beacon of hope, a fortress of peace, and a wellspring of kindness.
May I be light in a world which has not yet recognized it,and the darkness will never prevail it.
