Prayer for Today


Lord, open unto me
Open unto me--light for my darkness
Open unto me--courage for my fear
Open unto me--hope for my despair
Open unto me--peace for my turmoil
Open unto me--joy for my sorrow
Open unto me--strength for my weakness
Open unto me--wisdom for my confusion
Open unto me--forgiveness for my sins
Open unto me--love for my hates
Open unto me--Thyself for myself
Lord, Lord, open unto me.

(St. Augustine, from Presbyterian Book of Common Worship, p. 23)
