God of grace and peace,
give us patience to see beauty in simplicity,
give us the humility to affirm even the unglamorous truths.
We want you; not wealth, nor fame, nor gratification, nor even nobility to be the center of our being--
that for and toward which we live and move.
We don't need to be recognized and we don't need to be "edgy"... we just need you.
Walk with us as we rely on you.
