Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
In the noise and hustle of daily routines, comfort me in my mind with your light and your truth.
In the loss and fragmenting of relationships, comfort me in my heart, O Lord, with your light and your truth.
In the despairing swamps of my own sinfulness and the spoiling of your creation by humankind, comfort and purify my soul – our souls – with your light and your truth.
Lord God, comfort me with your light and your truth.
He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with his truth. (Psalm 96)
Prayer makes your heart bigger, until it is capable of containing the gift of God himself.
St. Teresa of Calcutta
