Acknowledging and Accepting Our Powerlessness Before GOD

A Prayer by Larry Hine, Spiritual Director as quoted by Brennan Manning

May all your expectations be frustrated
May all your plans be thwarted
May all your desires be withered into nothingness
That you may experience the powerlessness and the poverty of a child
And sing and dance in the compassion of GOD who is Father, Son and Spirit.
Amen

Dangerous, dangerous prayer Sam. But it's what we(I) need so desperately.

There's nothing worse (nor better) than being absolutely powerless.
