“May I never lose the wonder of Your mercy.”
May I forever be brought to my knees in awe of You.
May I bloody my feet from dancing ’round the burning bush that is the Spirit with us.
May I always be disturbed by the horrifying sins of the world
and the offense of my own
yet see them as redeemable, just as You do.
May I daily discover the gift of grace upon grace
and fully know it through eucharisteo.
May I measure all things against the price You paid for me
and see that it will never outweigh Your love.
May I awaken to the Belovedness of another
and my own place as Beloved
so I may know and be known, in entirety.
May I never say that I walked alone
but come to discern Your footprints every inch of my life.
May I rise with a posture of dependence, absolutely fixated on You
and rest in the depths of peace, only in You.
May it sting to keep my eyes shielded from Your glorious creation.
May it ache to cover my ears from Your whisper.
May it burn with a deep, searing burn to hold Your Name in,
that I would never be satisfied with containing that fire.
May I daily acknowledge Your romancing of my heart.
May I be wooed by the cross,
feel pursued by the empty tomb.
May everyday be the first day of eternity with You.
May I become a fool for You
trusting that everything is nothing without You.
May all places be a foreign land
as my home is in You.
