May you see through the eyes of Christ
exchanging your worldly ideas
for a vision of the kingdom –
mercy, justice, humility.
May you wait patiently for the Lord
in both joy and sorrow
knowing his promises to be true.
May you find comfort in a God who walks alongside you
hurting and struggling with you
understanding your heartaches and pains
binding your wounds with skillful hands.
And may you conform your mind and mission to Jesus,
seeking in all things
to draw others close to Him.
