Lover of Life when we risk faithfully and fail to succeed the first time or so often we have lost count, let us not lose heart, but stay steadfast and courageous. Let us not forget all our spiritual ancestors, whose faithful risks, attempts and failures were required before any success achieved. Let us not forget that for innovators and risk faithers failure will always outnumber what the world considers successes, because otherwise we are neither out of our comfort zone or seeking to fulfill the most difficult of our faithful promises. Lover of Life when we risk faithfully and fail to succeed immediately, grant us courage to stay steadfast and the wisdom to learn from our failures to risk again for what is worthy and good. Little by little may we find the way, helping one another, and encouraging each other for love's sake, as part of love's transformation of us and this world. Amen.
