unexamined life is not worth living.
The unexamined faith is not worth believing.
Help me, God, to
live fully, to examine,
and to believe.
me, Lord, to ponder the imponderable,
to believe the unbelievable, to know You, the Unknowable,
the Perfection of all Love,
the Infinite, the Timeless, the True.
me, by tiny steps of trust and faith
and love, to move forward through the dark
of the finite, toward You, the Ineffable, the Infinite,
the Perfection of all that is bright and Perfect, the Light
of all Lights.
am confident that if I can live my life well, minute by
minute, hour by hour,
day by day, year by year, I will come finally into Your
and understand the impossible, endless, pure and perfect
loving goodness of Your Eternal Majesty.
my God, hold me in Your heart, keep me from pride, keep
me from doubt, keep me from despair, keep me from disbelief,
but do not, I pray, ever, ever, ever keep me from You.
