Lent 22 (John 9:1-41)

A prayer of the man who once was blind:

Strengthen me, Jesus,
in this moment of stillness
knee-deep in healing waters.

Say a prayer for me, Jesus,
as I go back out into the world
to live in this complicated life.

Comfort me, please Jesus,
when they say that I cannot be
who I am or how I am or all that I am.

Encourage me, blessed Jesus,
to claim what no one else will affirm,
and to love this life and flesh always!
