Temptation

Rev. Steve Garnaas-Holmes, Unfolding Light


Grace and Peace to you. For forty days he was tempted by the devil.                            —Luke 4.2

God, I confess I want the power to make things as I wish them, to turn stones to bread, this to that, to have the world as I desire, not as it is.          I renounce my hunger for power.          Your love alone is my power.

I confess I want to manage what others think of me, I want authority, status, belonging, the kingdoms of the world.          I renounce my hunger for status.          You lone are my belonging.

I confess I want the security of freedom from pain, from risk, from sacrifice, as if I could leap from a height and be unhurt.          I renounce my fear of suffering.          You alone are my security.

Spirit of love, be my power, my security, my belonging; overwhelm the fears of my ego and re-direct my desires, that I may trust you, belong to you, and bear your love alone.

         I breathe your love.          I breathe your love. Amen.
