YOU KNOW ALL NEEDS - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Lord Jesus Christ, you were poor and miserable, imprisoned
and abandoned like me.
You know all human needs;
you stay with me when no one stands by me;
you do not forget me, but look for me;
you want me to know you and to come to you.
Lord, I hear your call and follow.
give me faith
that will save me from despair and evils.
Give me the love for God and other people
that removes all hate and all bitterness;
give me the hope
that frees me from fear and despondency.
Teach me to know Jesus Christ and to do his will.
