O Sweet Jesus, come to my rescue.
I am slow to learn, easily forget, and timid to ascend new heights;
I basque in the valleys when I should be upon the mountaintops;
I am wrenched by my unforgiving heart,
my countless days that murmur few prayers,
my inability love endlessly as I should,
my laziness in the heavenly work,
my numbing conscience to the Spirit’s conviction,
my wasted hours online and with social media,
my missed opportunities and unwillingness to maximize moments.
I lack vision while the light illuminates itself around me:
take the blindness from my eyes,
destroy within me my heart of doubt.
Make it my greatest delight to mediate upon You and Your works,
read Your Word,
look to You and You alone,
I believe, help my unbelief. Amen
