A Prayer To Be Turned Inside Out!

(Matthew 14: 31-33 and 44-51)

Lord, please turn me inside out
so people don’t see
the shape of my body,
the look on my face
or the colour of my skin
but see the shape of my heart
is in the image of your love
and the colour of our blood
unites us as brothers and sisters.

Lord, thank you that I can be
your mustard seed, too small to see
but growing to be a giant tree
Lord, thank you that I can be
like the yeast of life mixed into flour
to make your Bread grow…

Lord, turn me inside out
to reveal the mustard seed
that is growing inside me;
the yeast of my love
to be mixed with flour
to make a bread for life.
Lord, turn me inside out
to reveal a great treasure
that is more valuable than life
and is worth giving my life for.

Lord, please turn me inside out
because inside out people
will turn the world upside down.
