Wisdom, all our lives we have feelings some call negative simply because they do not feel good. Help us learn how to know and understand and use those feelings for goodness' sake, and not to dwell in them when they cause harm, but to also accept them when we have much to learn from them. Wisdom, may our regrets teach us what truly matters, encourage us to do better by this earth and by one another, lead us in saying sorry and living hopefully by making amends and seeking forgiveness. Wisdom, may our longings teach us what truly matters, that we may differentiate between envy and need, between greed and hunger, between what is nice and what is a true blessing. Wisdom, may our resentments teach us what truly matters, how to keep steadfast in the labors of creating fairness and equity and merciful justice, in expecting and holding one another accountable for kindness and dignity and acceptance, and in forgiving so there is a future of hope and the freedom to truly care for one another. Wisdom, may we hold steadfastly to what truly matters, and bear on together with love and hope and persistence, learning how to create a more gracious, equitable and merciful world, one day at a time. Amen.
