Lord, teach me to live:
as though I were cleaning the house of my life, gently brushing away all the cobwebs of disappointment and tiredness;
Teach me to be:
sparing of the spiders of dreams once dreamt, but reaching ruthlessly into the corners of lethargy and bitterness, leaving no room untouched;
Teach me to show by the way I live and the way I am:
that fresh hope, fresh energy and fresh life may inspire others...
as I follow Your call and serve Your people
in Christ’s name.
