Closing Prayer for Monday’s Worship

This is the closing prayer that we used for our Monday worship service on our Senior High Mission trip yesterday. We used it in conjunction with 1 John 3:16-18

O God,
Let something essential happen to me
Something more than interesting or entertaining or thoughtful
Let something essential happen to me
Something awesome, something real
Speak to my condition, Lord,
and change me somewhere inside where it matters
a change that will burn and tremble and heal
Let something happen in me that is my real self.
Amen.*

-from Guerrillas of Grace by Ted Loder, LuraMedia (1984)
