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.
that it may take into it all those who do not know him, but who are my responsibility because I know him.
And stretch it
that it may take in all those who are not lovely in my eyes, and whose hands I do not want to touch;
through Jesus Christ, my Savior. Amen.
