You said to Moses, “אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה.”
You will be who you will be.
You will do what you will do.
And we who believe, in part or whole, be that You alone define who you are.
We believe You say who You are.
Grant us the strength, wisdom, and grace to do the same with those around us,
To listen to their self-understanding,
To support the truth of their identity,
And to believe they are who they say they are and who they will be.
