Lord Have Mercy

My previous post tells about Natala’s story. Her prayer from part 8 has become my prayer also.

lord,
for all the times that i have turned my face
for all of the times that i have judged
for all of the times that i cast the first stone
have mercy on me
lord,
for all of the times i have looked down upon another
for all the times i have not stopped to help
for all of the times i stayed away from the world
have mercy on me.
lord,
for all of the times i wanted to be a better christian
for all the times i wanted the recognition
for all of the times i needed the validation of my faith
have mercy on me.
lord,
for all i have done against those you love,
for all i have done against the least of these
for all i have done against those who are most like you,
have mercy on me.

amen.
