Dear Lord, You have called me by my name. You have carved me in the palm of Your hand. May I grow in trust and never give in to despair.
I offer you my memory, understanding, my entire will. All I ask for in return is Your love and Your grace, that’s enough for me. Direct my focus always toward You and teach me to follow You in obedience and love.
May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the eternal high priest himself, the Son of God Jesus Christ, build us up in faith and truth and in all gentleness and in all freedom from anger and forbearance and steadfastness and patient endurance and purity. My blessed Lord, I ask for love. This is all we ask in Your mighty name.
