Prayer “I call you friends”

Prayer “I call you friends”

Jn 15:12-17: I call you friends.

At that time, Jesus said to his disciples:

– “This is my commandment: that ye love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than the one who gives his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do what I command you.

I no longer call you servants, because the servant does not know what his lord does: I call you friends, because all that I have heard of my Father I have made known to you.

It is not you who have chosen me, it is I who have chosen you and I have appointed you to go and bear fruit, and your fruit shall last.

So what you ask of the Father in my name, give you. I command you to love each other.”

 

I call you friends.

Don’t expect from me

lies or flattery.

You won’t hear words

easy, but misleading,

nor will I wrap you in silences

comfortable, but complicit.

I don’t offer you all the advantages

to the lower cost,

comfortable deadlines for justice,

or triumph without battle.

You will not have, in me,

a half-baked caricature of love.

I call you friends,

And in doing so, I promise you

Depth, passion, and truth.

I offer you my cross and my heaven,

my love and my fire,

my light and my time.

I present you my way,

my steps and my gospel.

When you feel ready,

I’ll wait for you.
