Help me, God


















Help me, God
to be a force of love -

to love better the ones who love me,

to listen to the ones who insult me
and try to understand
                where the loathing come from,

                and react with love
somehow,
nonetheless,

and not turn my back,
and not give up
on them,

to listen to my words,
to look at my actions,
and try to make them
hopeful, peaceful, challenging, loving,

                       light,

to work for good
even when I am
afraid, tired, sad, angry,

to wish the best for all people,
                even for those who don’t wish the best for me.


when i love, i am most like You.


when i give in to
hopelessness, violence, ease, hatred, indifference,
fear, exhaustion, sorrow, rage,

when i throw them at people, maybe even myself,
and don’t hand them to You  
 
                                                                                                i stray.

Help me to see 
always
that i live in You,
Your creation,
that i am Your creation,
surrounded by others,
every other
person,
tree,
bird,
dog,
also Your creation,

to trust that
he is
she is
we are
capable
of reflecting You
sometimes
even if not
all times.

Patience
with us
with her
with him.

Help me, God
to be a force of Love -
