A Witness

Abba,

I praise you that you look at the heart,

and not outward appearances.

I thank you for your gaze

that penetrates, sifts up, discerns…

and has love and compassion.

You so loved the world

that you gave your one and only Son

that whoever believes in Him will not perish

but have eternal life.

Grant me your heart and your eyes

to see a hurting world

through the walls, discord, anger, and sin,

the poor in spirit

that your Spirit hovers over,

and calls blessed.

Replenish me with your Spirit

to love from your wells of living water.

Grant me your passion and mercy

to embrace those in pain and suffering,

your strength to not turn away.

Use my hands, my heart, and my life

to be your blessing to whoever and wherever

you’d send me.

Let me witness

and find the kingdom of heaven

in lives touched

and hearts transformed,

by you.

Show me where you are moving Abba,

so that I may place my hand in yours,

and do what you do.

I love you.

Amen.
