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.
