God Knows us and Loves us
O Lord , you have searched me and you know me, Psalm 139
When we sit in centering prayer, introduce our sacred symbol, and enter a degree of rest, our defenses are down. The growth of interior silence along with our growing trust in God, enables us to face the dark side of our personality. We know that God knows us through and through, and still loves us. In fact, God could not be more delighted to provide this information. Grace enables us to evacuate negative emotions that are stuck in our nervous system, hindering the free flow of pure love that leads to divine transformation.
Have mercy on me, O God,
Because of your unfailing love.
Because of your great compassion,
Blot out the stain of my sins.
Wash me clean from my guilt.
Purify me from my sin.
