Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Stretch my heart

O God, enlarge my heart
      that it may be big enough to receive the greatness of your love.

Stretch my heart
     that it may take into it all those who with me around the world
     believe in Jesus Christ.

Stretch it
     that it may take into it all those who do not know him,
    but who are my responsibility because I know him.

And stretch it
     that it may take in all those who are not lovely in my eyes,
     and whose hands I do not want to touch.

through Jesus Christ my Saviour
