Lent 2016 - Lenten Activities + Prayers - Day 14


A prayer by Dietrich Bonhoeffer:

O God, early in the morning I cry to you. 
Help me to pray and to concentrate my thoughts on you; 
I cannot do this alone.   
In me there is darkness, but with you there is light; 
I am lonely, but you do not leave me.
I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help.
I am restless, but with you there is peace. 
In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience. 
I do not understand your ways, but you know the way for me.   
Restore me to liberty, and enable me to live now that I may answer before you and before men. 
Lord, whatever this day may bring, your name be praised.
