Mercy of Mercies, I am nourished by this life in a multitude of ways; from my gratitude, may I nurture what is good through my deeds and my words, my hopes and my efforts. Mercy of Mercies, I am nourished by the generosity and kindnesses of others, and am grateful for them. May I be generous and kind not only to those who show me kindness and generosity, but to those who bluff and rebuff or attack and demean. Mercy of Mercies, I am nourished by the efforts and dreams of others, their faithful risks and their courage in each day. May I take faithful risks, dream worthy dreams and live courageously each day. Mercy of Mercies, I am nourished by so many blessings, borne in great and small ways. May I live fully, leaning into each blessing, and add my own blessings to this life, nurturing it in gladness and gratitude. Amen.
