Dear Lord,

Please be to me who
In the name of Christ Jesus
Is the One I look to
To satisfy me,
To be the bridge
Between what I want and need
Making both one traveled road
Pleasing to You, my God and king.
Make my will yours, and in willing
Help me do what causes me
Above my own, to know You
And substitute your will in all things,
Every desire I birth brought into line
With the truth I see, clearly, wholeheartedly
Imitating the sacrifice Jesus made so that
All he did, all he said, bore the uncompromised
Imprint of You. God in things let my heart
Rejoice in knowing Your way as found treasure
Every time I or others say I no longer do things
My old way but increasingly I re present You, God.
