I am lifting up my soul to you.
I am handing over my questioning heart.
All is in your keeping.
Give me good questions to ask and worthwhile things for which to wait.
Teach me to wait creatively,
with patience, believing that you will lead me on the pathways I must walk. Open my eyes so that I may notice
that my paths are strewn with blessings.
How tenderly you have guided me throughout my years,
even when I walked in darkness.
May the bond between us deepen!
May the covenant of age-old love between us be renewed!
I sit at the feet of all my old promises,
asking you to help me remember my desire for you.
Bring back the childlike wonder I once possessed
and teach it to feel at home in my adult life.
I am open. I am ready. I am not yet patient.
I am putting my impatience into your heart,
O God. Receive it. Transform it.
