A Litany for Salvation

Jesus save me from my pride that refuses help, even when I know I need it.

Jesus save me from the fear I have about the future.

Jesus save me from the desire to be my own savior or to find a savior in somebody or something else but you.

Jesus save me from lust and treating and seeing others only as objects of pleasure. Jesus save me from anxiety about decisions and circumstances in my life.

Jesus save me from my interior poverty and brokenness.

Jesus save me from my loneliness.

Jesus save me from my insecurities about myself, my body and my state in life right now.

Jesus save me from being overly concerned with what people say or think about me.

Jesus save me from the thought that my life has no meaning.

Jesus save me from despair and the temptation to think that You don’t love me and that I am beyond your help.

Jesus save me from disordered desires that cause imbalances in my heart, body and soul.

Jesus save me from being envious and jealous of others.

Jesus save me from blindness that prevents me from seeing the truth.

Jesus save me from mediocrity and only living life with half of my heart.

Jesus save me from the fear of being the person you call me to be.

Jesus save me from an attitude of “possession” that wants to take instead of receive life as a gift.

Jesus save me from laziness and an inordinate desire for worldly pleasures.

Jesus save me from the fear of death.

Jesus save me from not seeing the good you have placed within me.

Jesus save me from the million other things I cannot see or hear right now.

Most of all Jesus, save me from the thought that your love is not enough for me…

 

God bless you,
