What If...I left a prayer here this Sunday night



A friend of mine edited a book of prayers, and the sample prayer on amazon.com really touched my heart, so I thought I'd share it here:

Lord of the excluded,
Open my ears to those I would prefer not to hear,
Open my life to those I would prefer not to know,
Open my heart to those I would prefer not to love,
And so open my eyes to see
Where I exclude You.


-Iona Abbey Prayer

Anne, how beautiful! It says it all, doesn't it? Jesus is in all. I will copy it in my daily planner as a reminder. Thank you for sharing it. Peace, Carolyn

What a great prayer and a great reminder to let God do the judging.

My Dear Anne,

Leave it to you to bring such a beautiful prayer to The What If...? Women. What a blessing to be reminded.

Anne said...

Oh, I'm so glad to see that others were as touched by this as I was. What a blessing you all are.

Wow, thanks Anne for sharing this. I have been so caught up in busy work and preparing for the upcoming school year I haven't been around the blog much to post and this is just what I needed to be reminded of instead of just thinking of my own little world.
