Make me a broken, humble, and pliable vessel;
Mold me to exemplify Your tolerance and grace.
Teach me to learn the lessons of suffering;
While failing and falling, show me the meaning of trust.
Encourage me to encourage;
Incline my ear to hear.
Let me learn to pour out of the heart and not out of the mouth;
Teach me to persevere with my brothers.
Help me to seize the day, not to seize cities;
To lend a hand with your bountiful gifts.
Cause me to toil in your vineyards of love,
and to give away the sustenance You so freely have given.
