a prayer

Eugene H. Peterson includes this little prayer in his commentary of Acts 10 in the Message Bible:

Dear Lord,

Take my heart,

Take it out of the parochial neighborhood that is my life

and bring it to other neighborhoods, other cities, other countries,

Take it there, Lord, and break it there.

And in the breaking, enlarge it.

Especially I pray for… [a foreign country God has put on your heart]
