I Get God: A Prayer of Thanks



Thank you for the reminder today, Lord, that when:

I give up greed, I get God;

I shun sin, I get God;

I turn from violence, I get God;

I relinquish my self(ish) will, I get God;

I refuse anger, I get God;

I turn the other cheek, I get God;

I cry a broken hallelujah, I get God;

I walk away from worldliness, I get God;

I leave lust behind, I get God;

I put away all pride, I get God;


I focus on truth, I get God;

I seek that which is noble, I get God;

I do what is right, I get God;

I long for what is pure, I get God;

I look to what is lovely, I get God;

I meditate on what is admirable, I get God;

I search out what is excellent, I get God;

I yearn for what is praiseworthy, I get God;


I embody love, I get God;

I maintain a disposition of love, I get God;

I hunger for peace, I get God;

I thirst after patience, I get God;

I hold on to kindness, I get God;

I cling to goodness, I get God;

I act in gentleness, I get God; and,

I embrace self-control, I get God.


But most of all, I'm just happy that

In giving myself to God, he in turn

Gives himself to me.

Indeed,

I get God.

Amen.
