Prayer of Love and Praise
From Birth, A Guide for Prayer, 11
Lord my God,
when Your love spilled over into creation
You thought of me.
I am from love
Let my heart, O God, always
and enjoy your goodness in all of creation.
Direct all that is me toward your praise.
Teach me reverence for every person, all things.
Energize me in your service.
may nothing ever distract me from your love
neither health nor sickness,
wealth nor poverty,
honor nor dishonor,
long life nor short life.
May I never seek nor choose to be other
than what You intend or wish.
