Prayer of Transformation

Source: Catholic Relief Services


Lord, I was a pile of ash

And you made me a light for the world

I was a stone

And you made me salt for the earth

I was as lifeless as clay

And you made me part of the Body of Christ

I was sinful

And you made me holy

I was nothing

And you made me part of everything


Lord, in you I am transformed

And transformed still again

When the discouraged cry for hope, make me hope

When the hungry cry for bread, make me bread

When the thirsty cry for water, make me water

When the suffering cry for help, make me help

When the sick cry for healing, make me healing

When the bound cry for freedom, make me freedom

When the outcasts cry for love, make me love


Lord who is hope,

Who is bread and water,

Who is help and healing

Who is freedom, and who is love,

Transform me anew,

And so keep me close to you,

As you transform the world.
