…at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships
–so that we may live from
deep within our hearts.
May God bless us with anger…
…at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people
–so that we may work for
justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless us with tears to shed…
…for those who suffer from pain, grief, rejection, starvation and war
–so that we may reach out our hands
to comfort them and turn their pain to joy.
May God bless us with just enough foolishness…
…to believe that we can make a difference in the world
–so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.
And the blessing of God who creates, redeems and sanctifies be upon us and all whom we love and pray for this day and forever more.
