In boundless love and compassion
you offer yourself to all
who seek your face in prayer,
and with deepest gratitude
I open myself to you in this moment.
Through the creative power of your Holy Spirit
bring your light to the dark corners
of my mind and my heart.
Deliver me from thoughts which lean
to comparison, judgment, and resentment.
Replace them with a continuous counting
of the amazing blessings in my life.
May I see the world around me
through your eyes of love and acceptance.
Give me a spirit of generosity and service,
so that in all my words and actions,
your love shines through.
May it be so.
