Prayer in Brokenness

A PRAYER IN BROKENNESS


O God,

I cannot undo my past,

or make it never have happened!

-- neither can You.  There are some things

that are not possible even for You

-- but not many!


I ask You,

humbly,

from the bottom of my heart:

Please, God,

would you write straight

with my crooked lines?

Out of the serious mistakes of my life

will You make something beautiful for You?


Teach me to live at peace with You,

to make peace with others,

and even with myself.


Give me fresh vision.  Let me

experience Your love so deeply

that I am free to

face the future with a steady eye,

forgiven,

and strong and in hope.

Amen.
