Pray for strength and watch your spiritual muscles expand!
I ask that you make me Yours—
not only your child,
Your wayward lamb—
but also Your instrument,
Your agent of change.
Teach me to surrender not to the darkness,
but to the light of possibility
as Your strength sustains me,
and Your wisdom guides me.
For once, I will not shrink
into the fear of insufficiency.
I will stand and face the darkness,
assured of your support,
praising You for this blessed duty.
