Prayer to Start the Week

Today I'm praying with Kierkegaard,

O Lord Jesus Christ,

I long to live in your presence, to see your human form and to watch you walking on earth.

I do not want to see you through the darkened glass of tradition, nor through the eyes of today's values and prejudices. I want to see you as you were, as you are, and as you always will be.

I want to see you as an offense to human pride, as a man of humility, walking amongst the lowliest of men, and yet as the savior and redeemer of the human race.

Amen.
