We invite you to pray with this prayer by Christine Jerrett. It is in English but you if you want to read it in you own language we reccomend to use http://www.deepl.com for translation.
God of mystery and miracles, Your Word brings light into the dark places of our lives; Your presence gives us strength to endure when we are pushed beyond our own strength. You find us in our lostness and, with love beyond our imagining, you lead us home. All this you offer in and through Jesus Christ. Yet, we resist you. We resist loosening our tight grip on our lives. We hesitate to trust you for you may lead us where we do not want to go. You know the places in our hearts and in our minds where we are well-defended against your intrusions. In this season of longing, grant us grace to bring all that we are to you, O Christ — all the broken places — all the lost wanderings — all the weariness from trying to live lives that are pleasing to you. Hold them all in the fullness of your love. Then, be born in us, that we may find our home, our life, our joy in You, Lord of light and love. Amen. (Christine Jerrett)
