Unlock the Doors

Praying John 20:19-29

Jesus, I confess:
at times my doors are locked
in fear.

You respect my defenses,
yet you step through my fears
and come to me.

You grant me your peace.
You breathe your spirit into me,
a Pentecost, a new birth.

You give me power to forgive,
the choice to be free of other’s sins
or to stay burdened by them.

You send me, as you are sent,
to those who long for you
but need to see and touch.

In your Spirit may I meet them as one
who has felt the wounds of the world
and still stands among them in love.

May Love be my Lord and my God.
Give me courage, Jesus,
to unlock those doors.
