A Prayer for Saturday, November 8, 2014


O God,

Help us to move

beyond intellectual belief in you
to absolute trust in you,

beyond general characterizations of groups
to particular relationships with people,

beyond a childish clinging to certitude
to a mature acceptance of mystery,

beyond a fear of the future
to an embrace of the possibilities,

beyond resistance to change
to acceptance of progress,

beyond guilt over our sins
to celebration of your forgiveness,

beyond a dread of death
to the living of life,

beyond obsession with self
to concern for others,

beyond what was
to what is,


beyond what is
to what can be.
