This Prayer is from ”The Prayer Tree” by Michael Leunig

This is one I find challenges me and it is good sometimes to have to think about whether we really can mean the words of a written Prayer.

God bless our contradiction, those
parts of us which seem out of character.
Let us be boldly and gladly out of
character. Let us be creatures of paradox
and variety: creatures of contrast; of
light and shade: creatures of faith, God
be our constant. Let us step out of
character into the unknown, to struggle
and love and do what we will.  Amen.
