My Book of Uncommon Prayers: Contentment

125 - Copy

May my concerns diminish in light of others’,

and may I care as You do with a heart that breaks—

that weeps over Jerusalem,

that hangs and bleeds on a tree.

May my selfish begging become unselfish surrender—

ever pliable,

ever content just to be loved by You.
