Spirit of comfort and demand, of callings and questions, stirring, coaxing, leading:
Spell out in us today the strong little word that makes the difference. Give us your yes, and make it our own.
And if the yes you give us cools or fades from sight, find it with your all-seeing light in the recesses of our hearts, warm it up by your ardent breath, and put it back on our lips where it belongs.
Even as we kick and scream, doubt and wonder, ponder, brood and bargain, make us say it, live it, become it.
Crown us with it, and impel us to offer it and share it, rejoicing in the full life you are making for all by the liberating power of one small word. In other words, Amen.
