Great mysterious Spirit of Love,
be with me today and all days.
Open my heart,
move my hands,
speak through my mouth
and awaken my mind
to prepare me for the work of love, caring, and justice
in this broken and beautiful world.
Sustain me when I am afraid.
Goad me forward
when I retreat into old ways of being
that are unloving to myself or others.
Help me see all that is extraordinary about this world
that I may be filled with awe and gratitude.
Help me serve the world, humbly and with joy.
Give me courage to work toward wholeness and healing,
my own and the world’s.
May it be so.
