May God bless you with discomfort

At easy answers, half-truths,

Superficial relationships, so that you

Will live deep within your heart


May God bless you with anger at

Injustice, oppression, and

Exploitation of people, so that you

Will work for justice, equity,

And peace.


May God bless you with tears to

Shed for those who suffer from pain,

Rejection, starvation and war, so

That you will reach out your hand to

Comfort them and change

Their pain into joy.


And may God bless you with the

Foolishness to think that you can

Make a difference in the world, so

That you will do the things which

Others tell you cannot be done.
