Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


Help me, Lord, to remove the beam in my eye

that I might see more clearly the work of your hands in my neighbors’ hearts.

Dislodge the darkness in my heart

and let the light of your presence,

always within me,

shine forth and bring the portion of your light that I possess

to shine with yours for the sake of the world.
