Lord, every time I open my hands,
I look heavenward to receive Your blessings.
I believe everything is a gift from Your overflowing love.
Undeserving as I may be, You have built my identity.
You have fashioned me as Your child
And given me dignity of sharing in Your life.
Help me to open my hands to let go and trust
For You run my affairs more than I do.
You admonish me to cast away my doubts and anxieties
And to live in harmony and peace.
Like a good steward, help me to be thankful in gratitude
To count more my blessings and less of my adversities.
Let me open my hands so that I can love and share my gifts.
Help me to understand that in a Christian love
I have the need to give more than giving to a need.
As I realize that I live on borrowed time and life
I wish to return the best portions of these blessings received
For the good of my Church to glorify Your name.
May I be blessed as a good servant, now that I offer
and return my gifts to You.
