Man what a prayer...

Jesus-friend of sinners...
we have strayed so far away
We cut down people in your name 
but the sword was never ours to swing...

Jesus-friend of sinners...
the truth's become so hard to see
The world is on their way to You but they're tripping over me
Always looking around but never looking up I'm so double minded
A plank eyed saint with dirty hands and a heart divided

Oh Jesus-friend of sinners...
Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers
Let our hearts be led by mercy
Help us reach with open hearts and open doors

Oh Jesus-friend of sinners...
break our hearts for what breaks yours

Jesus-friend of sinners...
the one who's writing in the sand
Made the righteous turn away and the stones fall from their hands
Help us to remember we are all the least of these
Let the memory of Your mercy bring Your people to their knees
Nobody knows what we're for only what we're against when we judge the wounded
What if we put down our signs crossed over the lines and loved like You did

You love every lost cause; you reach for the outcast
For the leper and the lame; they're the reason that You came
Lord I was that lost cause and I was the outcast
But you died for sinners just like me, a grateful leper at Your feet 

lyrics of Jesus, friend of sinners by Casting Crowns...
