Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Blessings That We Need

Lorna, my blog friend across the sea, offered this prayer (adapted from a Franciscan prayer) the other day:

“May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that we may live deep within our heart.

May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression and the exploitation of people, so that we may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, and starvation, so that we may reach out our hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.”

I love this prayer because seems to put a great perspective on the kind of blessings that we really need.
