A Prayer for Saturday, June 13, 2015

Used (Part One)

O God,

There are ways we used to be
that we no longer are,

thoughts we used to think
that we no longer think, and

things we used to do
that we no longer do.

Insofar as those are ways, thoughts, and actions
that were immature, improper, or insufficient,
we thank you that we have moved beyond them.

Insofar as there are ways, thoughts, and actions
that we should not have abandoned and
that in moving past we actually regressed,
help us to reclaim them.

Give us wisdom to
know the difference.

Give us strength
not to return to them
or to return to them
as is best for us and others.
