A Prayer

Oh LORD JESUS CHRIST, there is so much to drag us back: empty pursuits, trivial pleasures, unworthy cares. There is so much to frighten us away: a pride too cowardly to submit to being helped, cowardly apprehensiveness which evades danger to its own destruction, anguish for sin which shuns holy cleansing as disease shuns medicine. But THOU art stronger than these, so draw THOU us now more strongly to THEE. We call THEE our SAVIOR and REDEEMER, since THOU didst come to earth to redeem us from the servitude under which we were bound or had bound ourselves, and to save the lost. This is THY work, which THOU didst complete, and which THOU wilt continue to complete unto the end of the world; for since THOU THYSELF has said it, therefore THOU wilt do it — lifted up from the earth THOU wilt draw all unto THEE. — Søren Kierkegaard
