Hey Look, It’s the Prayer My Spiritual Director Warned Me About!

Hey Look, It’s the Prayer My Spiritual Director Warned Me About! December 2, 2014

Nathaniel Torrey on the Litany of Humility, which I super love although I also appreciate the fact that almost every reference I see to it includes some kind of Grizzled Local Tells Teens Not to Go in the Woods kind of warning. For me it helps me trust & rely solely on God–it reassures me that even if all my own schemes and people-pleasing strategies fail, God will love me. I think the worry is that the prayer can be misused to reinforce feelings like, “I don’t deserve love.” Fortunately I’m ideologically opposed to caring about what people deserve….

Anyway I would excerpt Torrey’s piece but I can’t figure out how to get past IRD’s fundraising thing. I’m hoping you all will have better luck.
