A Morning Prayer

Purge me God, of the inherited view of wrong belief; I can’t do it on my own.

I can’t live better, do more, and be more.

I need you and you alone.

I am wretched in comparison to the Law. When I reflect my image in the mirror of your glory, what a horrible creature I am!

You and you alone are all I need. I can’t do it on my own.

You save me. You gave me. You open the door.

The good news is that through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus can I be reflected even remotely – and yet completely – in you.

To save horrible men like me. Incredible.

Purge me of my inherited wrong belief.

You’ve saved me all the while knowing of my stench. You’ve given me the hope of life.

Only in the view of Your mercy can I offer my all.

Amen.
