Watch the prayer here

Let us offer ourselves to God:
turning, opening, blossoming,
like a flower towards the sun

All that I am I bring to you

Silence

 

All that is broken, confused, incomplete,
all that longs to cry but has no safe place
to shed unseen tears

All that I am I bring to you

silence

 

All that says:
"Who am I?"
"Where am I?"
"What am I doing here?"

All that I am I bring to you

silence

 

All that seethes with anger at injustice
all that rages and screams
at the horror of poverty, fear and pain
and the impotence to heal them

All that I am I bring to you

silence

 

All that cries with joy,
all that soars, all that sings,
all that flies on the wings of ecstasy

All that I am I bring to you

 

This is who we are
not the masks we wear each day,
not the roles we play,
but people
needing, asking, raging, soaring.
In your love bind us together
the broken and the whole in one bundle.

O God
our desire and our destiny,
accept us as we are today,
but renew and change us
to become the people we can be tomorrow
and in your eternity.   Amen
