God, prepare me to be a sanctuary today.
May my hands be eager to serve. May my heart to be willing to love. May my ears be ever open to listen.
May my eyes see people – not tasks. May my mind understand that things are not always as they seem and may you give me wisdom and insight to understand the root of the issues around me.
Give me courage in the face of opposition, respect in the face of authority, and kindness in the presence of my enemies.
For to walk in your ways is to know you, Lord, and to live in your footsteps is to be a living sacrifice – this is the highest form of living, the deepest act of worship.
