29th Day of Lent 2011

Day 29:

All seeing God, you know the ugliness smuggled in my heart which my mind often fails to detect; ugliness which puts my heart off balance, which wearies and confuses me, which tips me in false directions and inclines me to destruction.

Lead me into the darkness, that I may find what is concealed, bring it to your light, carry my cross wisely, and bring harmony into my life and world.

(Adapted from a prayer by Nathan Nettleton. http://www.laughingbird.net)
