God, my friend,
this day is yours,
I offer you my acceptance
of wherever you send-
suffering, joy, toil, trouble -
ennobled far beyond my means
because it comes through the greatest gift
you gave me to offer,
Jesus, your Son, our Eucharist.
I pray not to change your mind,
only to understand it,
to yield to it.
But I do ask you to be with me, especially in .......
And I ask your loving watchfulness for .......
Help me to find you, through the day,
beneath all your surprising disguises.
raise both your arms above your head
and tilt slightly backward.
