On the Other Hand

Here, O God, I pray for a realization of my condition in your eyes.  Help me to see and know myself as you see and know me.  Give me clear insight into my relationship with you.  Let me know myself as you know me.

Give me assurance that I belong to you.  Remove from me those nagging doubts and needless fears that I amy not be good enough to be numbered with the great company of heaven.

On the other hand, if I am living in separation from you, if I am more a creature of evil than a child of God, O Great Physician, use your convicting scalpel on me.  Perform within me the surgery necessary to heal me of all soul-sickness.

Christ, I abandon myself to you.  Do with me every necessary thing to assure my intrance into eternal life and the heaven already prepared for me.
