O God,
In the opening words of scripture you said,
“let there be light,” and there was light.

Throughout the Bible, we see time and time again that whatever you say comes to be.
You, O Lord, possess perfect integrity.
Your word and your action are one and the same.
There is nothing incongruent between what you say and what you do.

But it is not so with me, O God.
The gap between what I advocate and what I actually do
is sometimes wide and deep.

May my work call me to ever-greater integrity, O Lord.

Open my eyes and my heart to the opportunities
for change and growth
that you continually place before me.
