Dear God
We thank you that you know us and love us
love us and delight in us
delight in us and draw us more fully into your life.

We thank you that you know us and hear us
hear what we can say and what we can only sigh,
what we sigh and what we shout.

We thank you that you know us and free us
free us and heal us
heal us and restore us to life.

I thank you that you know me and love me
love me and hear me
hear me and free me.

We pray, I pray,
in the name of the One who became fully human
who journeys with us,
in Jesus name.  Amen.
