The Knots Prayer

Someone sent me this prayer today, and it touched me.

Life has ways to reach to me when I’m going through grey times that continuously amaze me.  I’m so grateful!

Here it is:

The Knots Prayer

Dear God :

Please untie the knots

that are in my mind,

my heart and my life,

remove the have nots,

the can nots and the do nots

that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,

may nots,

might nots that may find

a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,

would nots and

should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all,

Dear God,

I ask that you remove from my mind,

my heart and my life all of the ‘am nots’

that I have allowed to hold me back,

especially the thought

that I am not good enough.
