A prayer for Maundy Thursday. From Prayers from The Water’s Edge.
You washed the disciple’s feet.
You showed us how to serve.
You tell me to do likewise.
I want to be loved by You.
May I let You regularly wash my feet.
May I be accepting of Your constant offers of grace and forgiveness.
Let my life be like Your life.
Enable me to follow Your example.
Make me a foot washer—a bold and daring servant.
Help me be mindful of the many opportunities for service in my life.
Let my service be a blessing and inspiration to others.
Bless me as I seek to act more like You every day.
I want to be faithful to You.
Not betraying You. Not denying You. But faithful.
Give me grace when I fail and perseverance to keep growing.
Give me the ears to listen to and understand others.
Give me the vision to see others through Your eyes.
Empower me to serve others like You.
Let me take the bread and learn from Your life.
Let me take the wine and embrace Your forgiveness.
Let me show the world I am Your disciple.
