O Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me today. Let the peace and stillness of your eternal kingdom so different from the warring madness of this world enable me to feel a deep sense of your presence throughout the day.
By your grace, transform me into the person you created me to be. Help me see the world as you see the world. Let you call upon me life be seen as a living sacrifice that will make the poor rejoice, the wounded heal, and the lonely discover love. Let all my moments become moments empowered by your holy presence.
Speak to my heart of the things that matter most: of loving relationships with family and friends; of caring for the good earth; of living creatively, sensitively, and joyfully; and, of giving myself to your purposes in and through Jesus.
Help me to commit myself to causes that are substantial and everlasting, and that will be productive for all generations. Save me from boastfulness, from wrong behavior, and from false allegiances.
As the gentle streams find their beginning in the hills and then flow down to water the earth, let me discover my strength in you and then go out to bless the people and institutions beyond my limited view of the world.
O God, let me breathe the fresh air of your Spirit. Let me be so filled with your presence that I live today and every day with greater grace, deeper love, and renewed joy.
I offer myself to you to be all you created me to be in and through Jesus Christ. Amen
