Prayer

LIMITATIONS

For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10; NLT).


Father,
If I were young,
I would have energy
To spare –
As others do.

And if I were tall,
I could reach
High shelves –
As others do.

And if I were strong,
I could carry
Heavy bags –
As others do.

And if I were confident,
I could travel alone
Without stress –
As others do.

But I am old,
And small,
And weak,
And insecure.

Lord,
May I always remember
That when I am weak,
Then I am strong,
Because of you.

Help me to love
And serve you
In everyone I meet,
Despite my limitations.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
