Dear Lord,

Your goodness permeates our lives. It’s everywhere all the time and in each moment we breathe. We see it in the beauty of creation, experience it in the joy of laughter and are filled by it in a human embrace.

Help us know Your goodness is not just an occasional intrusion, wish or dream – but reality itself. Let it define who we are far more than what we feel, think or say; shape what we experience far more than pain, suffering or death; and drive how we live far more than stuff, power and prestige.

And by the way Lord, we are bold enough to ask for all of this starting right now and lasting into eternity itself.
