Prayer: The Art of Gentle Revolution

Here’s a prayer of petition from Michael Leunig.

Prayer of Petition

God help us to change.
To change ourselves and to change our world.
To know the need for it.
To deal with the pain of it.
To feel the joy of it.
To undertake the journey without understanding the destination.
The art of gentle revolution.
