“Keep me out of your way!”

"Lord, take me where you want me to go.
Let me meet who you want me to meet.
Tell me what you want me to say.
And keep me out of your way!”

This is the prayer of Fr. Mychal Judge ofm, New York Fire Service Chaplain, first official victim of 9/11 who died while ministering to the injured. It’s a prayer that I make my own today. Actor Gary Sinise mentions it in this interesting article in which he describes his faith journey.
