Summer Prayer

Let me be transparent as the air
for your love to pass through me

Help me to embrace my weakness
so my neighbors can know your strength

Plant your holy spirit in my soul
and pluck out the weeds that remain

Cover my fragility with your power
Keep me vulnerable to your presence
Shine out of me like the morning sun
Exhale through my mouth the words of life.

Keep my spirit looking for you
My heart listening for love
My mind asking for truth
My body looking for nourishment.

Make me a fertile ground
And cover me in a green pasture for others
To lay down.

What I have received from you
Let me freely give it away

Still the waters of my soul
And restore me

Today, I am yours
Tomorrow the same
From eternity to eternity
Let my story reveal your beauty .
