God, Whoever and Whatever You are:

	You are great and good, and the world and I,
	made in your image, a reflection of your divine
	self must also be good.

	I am not sure.  Nor do I know where to
	seek you.  But through searching, whether rewarded
	or not, I shall come nearer to you.

	You are love.  I know this when I gaze
	into the eyes of the one whom I love and
	feel you reflected there in all your beauty and
	magnificence.  I am thankful that I am able
	to discern this.

	Lead me to fulfill your world and all that is
	in it.  Through a human life, through an awareness
	of your kindness and joy lead me to yourself.

	These things I pray may come to be.

						Amen.
