Lord, let me live a quiet life.

Let me wake to simplicity.

Let me smile at the sunrise.

Let me enjoy simple pleasures.

Let me eat with thankfulness.

Let me drink and be satisfied.

 

Lord, let me be purified through your Holy fire.

Let me love you more than life.

Let me walk in holiness.

Let me live free from oppressive thoughts.

Let me appear winsome and gracious.

Let me find community and be content.

 

Then I will be the man I hope to be.

Because you will have made me who I never could have been.
