I've been using "borrowed prayers" for years, but I didn't know that's what I could call them until listening to a podcast by Emily P. Freeman called The Next Right Thing (this episode). And since then I've been thinking about all of the borrowed prayers that I use, such as the Psalms, the Lord's Prayer, and the prayers of other saints.
Emily shared this prayer by St. Francis Assisi in her podcast, and I thought I would share it as well. I hope that it blesses you as it has blessed me, and I hope to share more "borrowed prayers" in the future.
Welcome! I'm Madi, a laughter-loving, movie-going, spontaneous-dancing, follower of Christ. Join me as I seek glimpses of God's grace in the ordinary and everyday.
