May you eagerly await the glory of the King,
constantly desiring to be a servant
in the presence of the Master,
aspiring to honor him.
May you live a life of sacrifice,
existing as a kernel of wheat,
the beginning of a plentiful and abundant harvest
of new lives.
And may you meet and encounter Jesus in every circumstance,
not praying for rescue from pain and struggle,
but that whatever happens
you will be drawn to a Savior,
lifted on a cross,
to draw all to himself.
