There is so much we see. Most of it overwhelms us when we don’t guard our eyes, when we take it all in without discriminating for our own good.
Excite us over tomorrow when today’s words and events have felt forced or tiring or dispiriting.
When we try but don’t quite finish, give us the skills associated with gratitude. Form us into thankful people, people who are grateful for life and its gifts.
Make us fearless. Grant that we might see you in the blankness of what’s next.
Press into us faith and imagination because today requires both. And may we, in some way, offer you all we do and are. And may our offerings entertain and please you.
