September 10 Prayer
How can a blind person lead another?
We can only go where we have sight to see.
Jesus speaks to us so clearly to come and change the way we see.
The way we see ourselves when we look at others.
Where you have come from.
Where you are helpless and in need.
Remember but for the grace of God go I.
Until we can set aside our own beams
that get in the way we can not see the
one in front of us clearly as God does.
The one that is in need too, helpless like me
struggling to carry their own beam.
Lord, I come to you in my own limited sight and awareness,
and ask you to
Remove all that stands in the way
from me seeing the way
you see the world.
I lay down my own need to be above another,
to know more or be right in their eyes.
Clear the way for me to see,
remove the duplicity in my heart and all the ways
that get in the way of
a clear path of peace.
You are the God of restoration and shalom.
May your wisdom be set deeply within our hearts
to accept your correction and guidance.
We receive abundant grace with faith and love from Jesus Christ
to see more clearly.
Lord lead the way, we pray.
