Help me to see further than my own wants, needs, and thoughts. To see people’s hopes, wants needs, desires, especially the people I serve, the people I lead.
Help me to not so blinded by routine, practicality, and convienience.
Break my heart for what breaks yours and what breaks those around me.
Teach how to love how You have always loved me.
I confess that I am so far from being good enough. In this, like everything else I need you.
For you are my Shepherd, I am your sheep.
For you are The Potter, I am but the clay.
You are more than me, better than me, more loving than me…
and without you, it’s more than me that gets hurt.
So please God, oh Helper, Oh Redeemer, Oh friend,
The faithful one,
The Holy one,
The good and loving one, ever present…
Please hear my prayers,
