This prayer was on Missio Dei's Breviary for this evening's reflections. It spoke clarity into some of my deepest thinkings fears, and desires of late. It was cleansing to pray this from the bottom of my heart:
"Sovereign God, teach us to keep our arms ever open to love, to forgive and to serve. May we be willing to be hurt rather than hurt, willing to love and not be loved in return.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen."
