The Prayer of the Heart The Prayer of the Heart

They are not two people. Never are.
They are both me.
Sure of my worthiness, sure of my unworthiness. Believing the illusion of deserving.
But only the trusting one,
open to what can only be a gift,
receives what is always offered
without deserving.
The other earns their little wage
and goes home still wanting.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.
