A Prayer For Our Troubled Times

I think we're all too aware of how many people, maybe even including ourselves, who are running around with clenched fists. There are clenched fists aimed at those who have hurts us, those who have different political views, those who won't listen to us, and the God watches over us all. Here's a good prayer for all of us to pray so that change, and peace can begin within us:  “Dear God, I am so afraid to open my clenched fists! Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to? Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands? Please help me to gradually open my hands and to discover that I am not what I own, but what you want to give me.”  - Henri Nouwen
