Lord increase...

I said I would share a prayer that I've been using lately. It's one of David Adam's wonderful prayers in the Celtic tradition. I love the simplicity of the phrases, which also resonate with deep, lasting meaning.

Lord increase
My zest for living
My vision of glory
My hearing of your call
My grasp on reality
My response to your love
My sensitivity to others
My gentleness to creation
My taste for wonder
My love for you.

Hi ER,

I do like the prayer. It is simple, and there's much to be said for that. One thing that caught my attention was, well, the word "my".

I do not mean to detract from this prayer, but I wonder if today's 'church' culture focuses too much on "my" and should focus more on "your"...as in, we should look less at ourselves, etc. Anyway, just a passing thought, and not to trouble. :)
