A Prayer to Accept Your Invitation


help enable me to accept Your invitation

to grow closer to You

to express thanks for Your sacrifice

to join my fellow faithful

as guests at Your table

to recognize, yes, the suffering You went through,

but also the divine joy You bring to my life

to share that joy with others

to help draw that joy out from them

to help grow and strengthen Your community

to decipher Your singular and inherent goodness,

allowing it to enfold and enwrap me

so that, nestled in its abundance,

I am empowered to serve as but one

of Your many

missionary disciples.
