God of love and life,
you have formed us in our mother’s womb.
You have created us in your image and, like a masterpiece,
you have imprinted your sacred signature on our soul.
This knowledge is so wonderful that we can hardly stand it.
May we live with the profound awareness of your presence
while we learn to radiate hope, peace, joy and love
all the days of our lives.
—a prayer by the Rev. Won Hur, originally written for Advent Unwrapped
