A prayer, I prayed.

A couple months ago I wrote and said this prayer during worship.

Lord, you speak through the beauty and paradoxes of this life. Grant each of us the clarity to embrace your will and what it is you have called is to do. Give us wisdom to know your will for us, the willingness to accept it, the courage and strength to do it. We need your help in each of these ways, for we cannot do any of them on our own.  Give us what we need and not what we want. No more. No less. May we live today with a heightened sense of your presence? We place our lives completely and unreservedly in your hands, and trust your will for us. Amen.
