praying: Worthy Agents of Your Peace

On the commencement of summer book study on forgiveness and reconciliation:

“Saving God, free us from hardness of heart, take from us pride and pretension, strip us clean of all that makes us incapable of being witnesses of your gentle love. Make us worthy agents of your peace, so that even as we contend with one another the world must say, “But see how they love one another. Amen.”

(“Worthy Agents of Your Peace”- Stanley Hauerwas taken from Prayers Plainly Spoken)
