Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer for seeing

Lord God,

We come before you today humbled and grateful to be in your presence. In your faithfulness, Lord, we know that you are a God who sees. You are a God who hears. You are a God who knows all the inner workings of our hearts.

But our hearts are broken. And not always broken for the right things. Our hearts want things, O God, and they most often want the wrong things. So in our heart's brokenness, we ask for clarity and strength. Strength to resist the temptation to want the wrong things. And clarity to know which things our hearts should be broken for. Help us to see the world with your eyes and your heart, broken over the sin and pain in this world.

We thank you for the compassion and mercy. Help us give that compassion and mercy to others, too.
