enlarge our hearts

heart-1137266_960_720

O God: enlarge my heart that it may be big enough to
   receive the greatness of your love.
Stretch my heart that it may take into it all those who
   with me around the world believe in Jesus Christ.
Stretch it that it may take into it all those who do not know him,
   but but are my responsibility because I know him.
And stretch it that it may take into it all those who
   are not lovely in my eyes,
   and whose hands I do not want to touch.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
