My Book of Uncommon Prayer: Have Mercy

166 - Copy - Copy

When the pull to withdraw and be generic is strong,

when failings seem to outnumber successes, have mercy.

When others disappoint and my spiritual hands seem tied behind my back,

when my insignificance looms large in the face of greater gifts and greater foes, have mercy.

When tasks left undone are more than might or will,

Lord, have mercy.
