Prayer: "A Prayer for Washing Feet" by Macrina Wiederker

Is it really you kneeling before me
with that bowl of water in your hands?
I’d feel more comfortable if we could trade places.
I wouldn’t mind kneeling before you,
but you before me?
I can’t let you love me that much.
Your piercing eyes
suddenly heal my pride.
I’m able to accept your gift of love
and I am blessed.
O Gift Giving God
I blush with the memory
of gifts I’ve refused
because they weren’t given
my way.
