Prayer for Freedom

Almighty God,

Free us from the prisons
that we have built
with the bricks of
our own expectations,
trapped in cells
with invisible walls
that confine us only
because we let them.

Deliver us from the temptation
to trap others by presuming
to know your will for them,
and forgive us for the arrogance
of thinking that we could ever
constrain you with limits
on what you can do,
who you can save,
and who you might call.

In the name of Christ,
the one who gives freedom
to all who truly seek it,

Amen
