Sustainer God

Sustain in us, our God,
the vision of Your way
stretching out ever before us—
through the utter reality of our days
into the absolute truth of who You are.

Sustain in us as well,
as we embrace Your way (as best we can),
the hope and the excitement of possibilities
that our world and our circumstances drain,
the commitment to a way of being
the priorities of our culture don’t understand,
the grace that surprises us as much as anyone else,
and the love that is Your initiative toward us
and thus ours to all creation.
It is in the name of Jesus
this we pray,
amen.
