A Sunday Prayer


Gather me to be with you.

by Ted Loder, Guerillas of Grace

O God, gather me now

to be with you

as you are with me.

Soothe my tiredness;

quiet my fretfulness;

curb my aimlessness;

relieve my compulsiveness;

let me be easy for a moment.


O Lord, release me

from the fears and guilts

which grip me so tightly;

from the expectations and opinions

which I so tightly grip,

that I may be open

to receiving what you give,

to risking something genuinely new,

to learning something refreshingly different.


O God, gather me

to be with you

as you are with me.
