Prayer for My Life
Dear God, we call from our short lives to you who are the beginning and the end. O hear me now in my fear of what will come at the end, at the end of my life. For I know that my life will end and so too the lives of all whom I have loved. I don’t ask that you do anything about this fate. I know how the story ends. I only ask to live this wonderful life more vividly, more deeply, more compassionately, more for others than for myself, that my life may therefore have meaning, and be a gift to all whose lives I touch. …and be delightful and surprising to you, my heart, my home, my God. Amen.
