A July Prayer

Written by on July 1, 2022

Father in Heaven!

You have loved us first,

help us never to forget that You are love

so that this sure conviction

might triumph in our hearts

over the seduction of the world,

over the inquietude of the soul,

over the anxiety for the future,

over the fright of the past,

over the distress of the moment.

But grant also that this conviction

might discipline our soul

so that our heart

might remain faithful and sincere

in the love which we bear to all those

whom You have commanded us to love

as we love ourselves.

-Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
