A Prayer for Friday, August 24, 2012


What happens in our hearts, O God, can be awe-inspiring or terrifying.

Sometimes, when we attend to your Spirit and to your grace, when we manage to keep our hearts open to the world and to you, we find our hearts growing in awareness, in compassion, in love, and in peace—and that is awe-inspiring.

Other times, though, when we fail to work at paying attention and at being vulnerable, we find our hearts becoming fearful, angry, judgmental, and callous—and that is terrifying.

Cause us to work at keeping ourselves in a position where you can work in our hearts in ways that will fill us with awe and will drive away the terror.
