“A Prayer For Receptivity To The Ancient Words Of Scripture”

August 14, 2017

Praying man Father, turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to Your Word. I delight in your Law. I will not neglect your Word. Show me Your ways, O LORD, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long. As we see the rampage of hatred, violence, and bigotry in our day; the deliberate neglect and ignorance of the ancient words that Scripture imparts, help us to not lose hope, but be fervent in our study of Your Word, so that it changes us from the inside out and strengthens our resolve to live as light in this darkened world.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

 

(Selected verses from Psalm 119)
(Prayer of St. Francis)
