Torn of the Flesh

May this “thorn in the flesh”
teach me compassion for others
who suffer, faith that God
will guide me on the path
of righteousness, humility
in my imperfection
gratitude for all the blessings
in my life

Please empty my heart
of all self-pity, self-righteousness
envy, greed – indeed all darkness
so that You can fill me
with the light and love
of Your Spirit
