A Prayer of Origen of Alexandria

Jesus, my feet are dirty.
Come even as a slave to me, pour water into your bowl, come and wash my feet.
In asking such a thing I know I am overbold, but I dread what was threatened when you said to me, “If I do not wash your feet I have no fellowship with you.”
Wash my feet then, because I long for your companionship.

By Origen of Alexandria, 2nd century Christian theologian.
