Political Engagement — a Prayer

Jan 30, 2017

Lord, hear my prayer.

For saying that something needs to be done
while refusing to do anything myself,

Lord, have mercy.

For believing that cries of outrage
were the same as acts of love,

Lord, have mercy.

For letting my own ego keep me from
reaching out to those with whom I disagree.

Lord, have mercy.

For pretending that loving humanity
was the same as loving my neighbor,

Lord, have mercy.
