I also ask that You grant me
wisdom in the journey.
Teach me to embrace each challenge
as a new lesson learned.
Help me recognize the joy of the work
the unexpected truth
that there is as much delight
in the process as there is in the result.
Open my eyes that I might recognize my work
as a service to those around me,
teach me to cherish my career
for the good it enables me to do.
And when I have at last reached my goal,
remind me that I did so with You at my side,
so that I may offer you my gratitude
not only for what I have accomplished through You,
but also for who I have become.
