A Rabbi's Prayer.

I found this in Brennan Manning's, "the Ragamuffin Gospel" several years ago.
It never ceases to stop me in my tracks and either convict me- or motivate me.

Soak it up. Believe it. Pray it.

“Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder. Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of Your universe. Delight me to see how Your Christ plays in ten thousand places, lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not His, to the Father through the features of men’s faces. Each day enrapture me with Your marvelous things without number. I do not ask to see the reason for it all; I ask only to share the wonder of it all."--Rabbi Joshua Abraham Heschel
