a prayer for the church in america from bw3

Dr. Ben Witherington has posted “An American’s Prayer for the New Year” on his blog. Check the whole thing out. Here’s the last bit–A good prayer indeed.

“Help me to not mistake my busy-ness for your business in all respects. Help me not mistake my convictions for your truths in all respects. Help me say more often— ‘I do not know’. Help me to continue to learn before I teach, to love before I critically evaluate, to praise before I blame, to help before I hinder, to listen before I speak.”

Amen.
