Addendum to “grudgual” post

This morning, while reading Alan Paton’s “Instrument of Thy Peace,” I ran across the following prayer, which is a fitting response to yesterday’s post… Thank you, Holy Spirit!

“Lord, make me willing to be used by you.  May my knowledge of my unworthiness never make me resist being used by you.  May the needs of others always be remembered by me, so that I may ever be willing to be used by you.

And open my eyes and my heart that I may this coming day be able to do some work of peace for you.”
