May God bless us with a restless discomfort about easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships. So that we may seek truth boldly and love deeply within our hearts.

May God bless us with holy anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people.  So that we may tirelessly work for justice, freedom, and peace among all people.

May God bless us with the gift of tears to shed with those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, or the loss of all that they cherish. So that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and transform their pain into joy. 

May God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we really can make a difference in this world. So that we are able, with gods grace, to do what others claim cannot be done.

Amen.
