Make us new, O Lord. Cut away all that keeps us apart from you and from each other. Pry from our hands those things that keep us from receiving our gifts and sharing those gifts with others. Remove from our minds the petty, demeaning, and hurtful thoughts which keep love from being rooted in us. We seek these blessings in the name of Him who taught us to pray...
