A Prayer Based on Words by Leonard Sweet

Give me, please,
the passion of Jesus and the compassion of God.
Give me the passion of Paul, Augustine, Catherine of Siena,
Calvin, Luther, Wesley, Pascal,
Sojourner Truth, Karl Barth, Howard Thurman.
Up my intensity.
Get me cheering and clapping.
Like Ginny Owens, I don't wanna be a flame,
I wanna be a raging fire.

Be pleased, Lord, to make it so. Amen.

(based on words by Leonard Sweet, from his book, Viral)
