A Prayer for Weak Eyes

When I was in graduate school I came across a prayer by Kierkegaard that I liked so much that my wife printed it in calligraphy. For many years it hung in my office. I think of it as a prayer regarding self-deception….

Lord! Give us weak eyes
for things that do not matter
and eyes full of clarity
in all your truth.

- cited by Daniel Clendenin in the Journey with Jesus blog for 9/2/12
