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

the body prayer

Help my surrender my body to you, O Lord.

Fill my eyes with love. Open them to your beauty.

Let my eyebrows rest in a position of empathy and concern.

Bring the corners of my mouth up, creating a smile that will bring peace to a passing stranger.

Lower my shoulders, so I can receive.

Take my hands out of my pockets, and put them in a position to serve.

Lean my torso forwards, so I can listen and hear.

Strengthen my hips. Fortify my legs. For I desire to stand firm in the faith.

Lower my knees, that I may see everyone eye to eye… especially those who have stumbled.

Bring my feet off my heals—and set me off now to do your work.
