I have found a special form of prayer extraordinarily helpful when I am
perplexed about a moral decision for direction for myself. I call it
"the radical prayer":
Holy Spirit, if this is right for me, let it become more firmly rooted and
established in my life.
If this is wrong for me, let it become less important to me, and let it be
increasingly removed from my life.
We should not pray this prayer unless we mean it. It is always heard
and answered in definite and surprising ways. Habits begin to lose their
grip. Relationships change. Neglected parts of ourselves begin to
grow. New attractions and likings surface. Surprising abilities
appear. Some familiar old tendencies become unattractive to us.
Something always happens when we pray this prayer in honesty.
