How often do you do laundry? How often should you be doing laundry? Our clothes get more worn as the day goes on. Even outside of the normal wear and tear, we may spill, get muddied, or even rip a hole. Just like our clothes, our spiritual lives need to be laundered too.
Lord, there are many part of me that need to be washed.
Cleanse my worries, cleanse my thoughts.
Cleanse my habits, cleanse my intentions.
Cleanse my sins, cleanse my judgments.
Cleanse my mindset, cleanse my actions.
Create in me a new, squeaky-clean heart, oh God.
Many prayer practices such as the Ignatian Examen encourage us to take a look at our actions and perhaps the motivations for those actions as well. How do you plan to move forward?
