Prayer - St Paul's conversion

Acts 9: 1-20 – The Conversion & Call of Paul
This prayer could be used at the end of the sermon, or with a reflective group:

When I am certain,
open my eyes.
When I am too quick to condemn,
open my eyes.
When I rejoice in another’s downfall,
open my eyes.

Help me to see you
in the poor, the lonely,
the person struggling with illness or disability.
Help me to see you
in those whose lives are chaotic,
in the most horrible criminal.
Help me to see you
in the past-it politician
and the people who used to be somebody.

And then,
when my eyes are open
and I can see you,
give me the insight
to make good choices,
to walk in your way.
