A Prayer for Friday, August 28, 2015

Instrument (Part 5)

O God,

Make me an instrument of your mercy.

Thank you for your great mercy that
leads you to forgive me for my sins.

Let my experience and awareness of
your mercy so pervade my life that
I have to and want to extend mercy
to those who hurt or wrong me.

Rid me of all that stands between
me and my granting of mercy.

Rid me of

pride that must protect
my wounded ego,

grudges that keep track of
wrongs done to me, and

vengeance that is willing to
do wrong to make things right.

Help me to forgive others
as you forgive me.

Help me to forgive others
because you forgive me.

Lord, make me an instrument of your mercy …
