Father, Open My Eyes

Father, open my eyes. I want to see as you see. I want to see clearly, without the cloudiness of prejudice, without the confusion of personal comfort and desire, without the blinding of pride, bitterness, and self-concern. Help me to see clearly, to see through eyes of love, concern, mercy, and humility.

Father, help me to see as you see. Let me notice the one who is crying, the one who is hurting, the one who is in need. Let me see, and let me care, and let me move to make a difference, to provide a firm shoulder to lean upon, to give a helping hand, to act in love.

Father, open my eyes. You are light. Your light dispels darkness. You bring sight to the blind and hope to those that are lost. Father, help me see as you see.
