How Close Do I Want to Be?

Dear Lord,

I pray that my heart would:

be as a child's before you each morning, sprout a garden of willingness to please you, be cautious yet open, seek your peace but be willing to fight your fight, have you as its priority, find its confidence in you, be stilled at the sound of your voice, desire justice tempered with love, follow you as the sunflowers do the sun, be ever faithful, be flooded with your light in every dark recess, be bowled over by the knowledge of your love, reflect your kindness, love others, be hidden in you so that every relationship would be based on you, and know that you, and you alone, are more than enough.

Love, Esther

If this is the prayer you wrote (saying Dear Lord; Love, Esther; may mean it is a letter) ... but if it is the prayer you wrote ... and talked about in another entry ... AMEN, SISTER; merci for sharing. DIEU TE BENISSE!!!
