Holy week // prayer of refocus
“set your mind on things of above.” (colossians 3:2)
// today’s prayer //
“o god the holy spirit,
when you first hovered over chaos,
order came to birth,
beauty robed the world,
fruitfulness sprang forth.
move, i pray, upon my disordered heart;
take away the sins of unruly desires and hateful lusts.
lift the mists and darkness of unbelief;
brighten my soul with the pure light of truth...
fulfill in me the glory of thy divine offices;
be my comforter, light, guide, sanctifier;
take of the things of christ and
show them to my soul;
through you may i daily learn more of his love,
grace, compassion, faithfulness, beauty;
lead me to the cross and show me his wounds,
the hateful nature of evil, the power of satan;
may i there see my sins as
the nails that transfixed him,
the cords that bound him,
the thorns that tore him,
the sword that pierced him.
help me to find in his death the
reality and immensity of his love.
open for me the wondrous volumes
of truth in his, ‘it is finished’...
o holy spirit, deepen in me these saving lessons.
write them upon my heart, that i my walk may
be sin-loathing, sin-fleeing, christ-loving.
