Lord, Make Me a Channel of Disturbance: The "Reverse St. Francis of Assisi Prayer"....
Lord, make me a channel of disturbance.
Where there is apathy, let me provoke;
Where there is compliance, let me bring questioning;
Where there is silence, may I be a voice.
Where there is too much comfort and too little action, grant disruption;
Where there are doors closed and hearts locked,
Grant the willingness to listen.
When laws dictate and pain is overlooked…
When tradition speaks louder than need…
Grant that I may seek rather to do justice than to talk about it;
Disturb us, O Lord.
To be with, as well as for, the alienated;
To love the unlovable as well as the lovely;
Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
George S. Patton
