10 – Jesus is stripped.
What am I unwilling to have taken from me?
What do I refuse to release?
Can I hold on to dignity and purity as you did?
Even when in pain?
Am I willing to stand before the world with nothing to shield me?
Can I know in my heart what is yet unseen?
Help me to hold lightly the things of this world, help me to hold tightly to my spiritual gifts.
Let us pray:
Lord, thank you for blessing me with your amazing grace and love, and offering me access to deep wisdom and surprising inner strength. You present me with security in the knowledge of the truth. Here I am Lord, welcoming, embracing and embodying your gifts, filled with profound gratitude.
