Lord! give us weak eyes
for things which are of no account
and clear eyes
for all thy truth.
Kitamori writes afterward:
Without these eyes, a witness is but a visionary; without this sensitivity, a theologian is but a loquacious man.
So, my prayer this morning before class is this:Lord! blur my eyes to whatever is of no account; open my eyes to all your truth. Let my experience of you be more than daydreams; let my thoughts and words of you be more than chatty ramblings. Amen.
