Holy One, Resurrecting One, as different as the flowering tree is from the seed, so transformed may I be today:
I shed the habits and fears that bind me, set free by your grace.
All the desires and attachments that prevent me from loving perfectly are swallowed up in death; and in the dawn of your new day a new person comes forth in me, full of loving kindness toward all beings.
With each breath I draw your eternal life: not the life of my making and managing, but life that is pure gift.
May my small, self-bundled self die, and the soul of your creating be born, tender and fragile and wondering.
Re-create me today as a merciful person, flowering with your infinite grace.
