A Prayer for Friday, November 6, 2015

If Ever

O God,

If ever I forget all the kindness you have shown me,
if ever I don’t treat someone like I want to be treated,
if ever I value my possessions more than I should,
if ever I think of people in stereotypes and generalizations,
if ever I put being right ahead of being loving,
if ever I let myself believe that I am better than someone else, and
if ever I start to let fear and despair win out over faith and hope,

show me my error, forgive me my sin, and help me

turn my spirit, heart, mind, and body back to you
that you might turn them back toward the world,
better able and ready to live in your love and grace.
