Wonderful Love, open our hearts to embrace this world, with all the sorrow that is, all the mistakes and failures, all the cruelty and all the greed. Open our hearts lest we, too, grow cold and rusty and unable to remember how to recognize injustice, or fear failure so much we cannot risk for love's sake let alone risk kindness. Wonderful Love, open our hearts to embrace this world, to remember how we are part of it, part of struggle and part of joy and part of hunger and part of enoughness and part of hope and part of grief. Open our hearts that we may dance fiercely to oppose oppression and dance sweetly to bear each other up and through sorrow and tough times and dance gratefully and gladly for grace-filled times and for celebration. Wonderful Love, open our hearts to embrace this world, to make way for mercy and generosity when no way seems possible, to make way for wonder and awe when cynicism is so much easier, to make way for peace when turmoil and division holds sway. Open our hearts to possibility and to making possibility amidst apparent impossibility, to strive together for what is worthy and sweet and blesses others, blessing the whole world. Wonderful Love, open our hearts to embrace this world, to be active agents of love and mercy and justice and kindness, to be active together in generous care of one another and the planet, to be active together in seeking and sharing wisdom, all our nights and all our days. Amen.
