This made me so happy. Definitely worth watching!

I've been pretty obsessed with Mary lately (meaning the mother of Jesus, in addition to being obessed with Mary my best friend and Mary my mentor! What a name.) A woman at our church recently prayed for me on a Sunday that I would have "the heart of Mary". I thought it sounded cool and then I thought about it. Yikes. She didn't exactly have an easy time of it. Scary prayer. But that said I hope it is one God will help me to keep praying... she is pretty freaking amazing, I've been drowning in Luke and loving it this Advent.

"Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word."

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
