Prayer: Blind Faith

Here’s a thoughtful prayer from Bruce Prewer, suitable for use on the second Sunday of Easter.

Blind Faith
(inspired by Mark 16: 14; Luke 24:35-42; John 20: 24-29)

Spirit of Christ,

we, who like to think
we are reasonable people
of scientific bent,
thank you for the gift

of blind faith.

Where we can no longer see
but stand bemused and hope-less,
you come to our side
and give us the courage

to leap

across a love-gulf so deep
that is separates
Dives from Lazarus
and despair from joy.

Spirit of Christ,

stand by us today
that we may again leap
where reason fears to tread
and to love where ego stalls.
