Dear God, let me shed all weight, dropping my burdens. I drag so much with me – regret and worry, fear and envy. Remorse over the past and terror for the future press me down and keep me from doing your will. They paralyze me, they increase my self-regard, they shut me away from your sunlight.
Lord! Let me throw off this heavy cloak. Let me walk on encumbered. Let me drop all I carry. Keep my hands empty and free.
