Disturb us, O Lord

Oct 20, 2021

Disturb us, O Lord,prayer, pray for disturbance
when we are too well pleased with ourselves when our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little, because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, O Lord,
when with the abundance of things we possess, we have lost our thirst for the abundance of life when, having fallen in love with time, we have ceased to dream of eternity and in our efforts to build a new earth we have allowed our vision of Heaven to grow dim.

Stir us, O Lord,
to dare more boldly, to venture into wider seas where storms show Thy mastery, where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars.

In the name of Him who pushed back the horizons of our hopes and invited the brave to follow. Amen.

~Archbishop Desmond Tutu
