From An Altar Prayer (1989) by Jeremiah Wright

“Lord, Thou hast searched us and known us. We cannot come before You with any pretense this morning. We come open [indeed] naked before the One who knows all about us. And as we sit or kneel, we realize that You see us warts and all. We are covered up with Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes and make-up and jewelry; but we realize that before You all the scars, all the pain and the isness of who we are is made evident before Thine eyes.”
