David G. Sammons
O Spirit of life, let us resolve to move on with our lives in spite of whatever troubles may befall us. We know that we're imperfect, prone to mistakes, often so concerned about ourselves we're blind to others. We are prone to sin and, in our best moments, we know it.
Let this knowing not fill us with guilt. Let it, rather, help us to be patient and understanding. Let it help us to feel the inner strength, the courage, the resolve to shape our future lives in ways that give dignity to them and help add dignity to others.
We do this in response to the call we feel from thee, O Life, to join with you in the furtherance of creation. Amen.
