I pray that you will wake each morning
and search for God throughout your day.
That you will meet the challenges life
tosses your way with prayer and confidence.
That the toys and noise of this world
will not reflect in your eyes.
That life will be an adventure with Christ;
not too predictable or overly planned.
That you will make time to be available to Him.
I pray that when you see a need
you will do your best to meet it.
When you see fear you will give comfort.
When you see anger you will respond with patience.
When you see injustice you will defend.
When you see a life without Christ
you will make an introduction.
I pray that when you are in need you will go
to Him and graciously accept the help He sends.
When you are afraid you will curl up in His loving arms.
When you are angry you will look at the situation
through His eyes.
When you are treated unfairly you will seek
His comfort and guidance.
I wish you joy with just enough discomfort
so you will appreciate the joy.
I wish you prosperity with just enough struggle
to make you responsible and generous.
I wish you peace but not enough to make you complacent.
Embrace the life He gives you,
always seek His face,
always hope, always dream,
work hard, pray hard
serve often, laugh often
And love unconditionally…
as He has always loved you.
