Oración de la rebeldía

day_eleven-300x250.png

Llego ante Ti, Señor, con humildad a pedirte rebeldía. Quiero vivir comprometido con la justicia. No venderme por nada ni ante nadie. Resistir la tentación de buscar una falsa paz de la comodidad y la ceguera.

Hazme un inconforme con el error, la injusticia, el odio, un insatisfecho con la farsa del mundo, pero con un gran deseo de trabajar por mejorarlo.

Hazme un indómito de tu Reino, que es la fe y justicia, digno de recibir aquellas palabras tuyas: “En el mundo tendréis apreturas; mas tened buen ánimo: Yo he vencido al mundo”.

Prayer of rebellion

I come to you, Lord, with humility To ask you for rebellion. I want to live committed with justice. Do not sell me for anything or anyone. Resist the temptation to seek false peace Of comfort and blindness.

Make me unhappy with error, injustice, hatred, And dissatisfied with the farce of the world, But with a great desire to work to improve it.

Make me an indomitable one of your Kingdom, Which is faith and justice, Worthy of receiving those words from you: "In the world you will have squeezes; But be of good cheer: I have overcome the world".
