Love Like You

Lord,

would you teach me how to love,

to peer into a soul

and see what you see,

having compassion,

unconditional acceptance

for a history I don’t see,

suffering I can’t understand,

to let go of my judgement

and lean my head on your heartbeat,

to be patient, kind, and gentle,

soft against harsh edges,

gracious toward prickly spines,

can you give me a new grace

to interact with others,

an anointing to speak words

that bring life and healing,

an empowerment and strengthening

a fresh infusion of your Spirit

to wait, give space, choice, freedom,

the honoring and dignifying,

that you have done for me

in my shame,

believing, hoping

for your best in others,

trusting that your love

is more powerful than anything in the world.

Let me love like you Lord,

remembering your love

has transformed me.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.
