John Shelby Spong’s favorite prayer

Gracious God,

Send us anywhere in this world You would have us go,
Only go thou with us.

Place upon us any burden You desire,
Only stand by us to sustain us.

Break any tie that binds us,
Except the tie that binds us to thee.

Amen.

(attributed in a slightly different version to David Livingstone)
