You refused to take the easy way out in Your quest to redeem us. Show us that “spiritual” and “short-cut” are oxymoronic terms.
May our relationship with You be truly active and dynamic, not merely the dim glow of a past experience.
Empower our worship to keep our hearts and minds focused on what is essential and eternal.
Reveal to us how we need You in the good times as much as in the bad times.
