My Prayer for You

May God bless you

with a restless discomfort

about easy answers and half-truths
and egotistical actions for peer-approval
and superficial, empty relationships

So that you may

seek truth boldly
and love without fear
and live with a healthy aversion to swimming downstream


May God bless you

with a soul that’s wild enough

to live outside the box
and love outside the boundaries

So that you may

firmly crush mediocrity
and tightly hold on to grace
and daringly write your own life story inked in Christ


May God bless you

with enough foolishness 

to believe that you are invaluable
and you are unconquerable
and you really can make a difference

So that you may, by God’s grace

boldly do what the world claims cannot be done.
