Loving God, I come with joy in my heart. I am grateful for all the moments of my life. I celebrate when you show me sunshine in a rainstorm and surround me with warmth in a blizzard. Your love has formed me and transformed me as become all that you desire. Lord, there is nothing that I would not do to please you yet, so often I fall short. My intentions are good but to be faithful requires more than intentions. Forgive me and lead me.

Guide me, Gracious One, and open my spirit to the needs of those around me. Open my ears to the hurts that go unspoken. Open my eyes to the broken hearts that struggle to find peace in a crowded room. Open my hands and help me release the abundance that you give. Open my mouth and let your words flow freely to bless everyone I meet. Let my life be a witness to your goodness and grace.

Each day, I lift my praises to you for each day is a gift that holds countless ways to experience your love. In the silence, I offer my life to you. Do with me as you will…for I am yours. Amen and Amen!

-Rev. Maria Campbell
