A Prayer, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Good morning Constance…today I ran across this prayer by the amazing Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Won’t you take a look with me…and then set your spirit to be committed to becoming! If you profess Jesus, then join in directly to his prayer…and if your conscience leads you otherwise, uncover the intention and will within the prayer, and align with that.
The world is always a better place when our sin is diminished, our struggle to overcome evil is assisted, and God is near!
“Lord Jesus, come yourself, and dwell with us, be human as we are, and overcome what overwhelms us. Come into the midst of my evil, come close to my unfaithfulness. Share my sin, which I hate and which I cannot leave. Be my brother, Thou Holy God. Be my brother in the kingdom of evil and suffering and death. Come with me in my death, come with me in my suffering, come with me as I struggle with evil. And make me holy and pure, despite my sin and death.”
