The Great I AM: A Prayer for the Young Adults in Mission

May the Great I AM
Hear You
Deliver You
Protect You
May the Great I AM
Provide for You
Nourish You
Guide You and Lead You
May the Great I AM
Teach You
Train You
Transform You
May the Great I AM
Redeem You
Restore You
Rejoice over You
May the Great I AM
have all of your lives –
all of your faith, hope, and trust,
all of your doubt, anxieties, failures, and shortcomings –
that you may know the Great I AM in ever deeper and fuller ways
because the Great I AM – the triune God – was, is,
and will be for you…forever.
Alleluia.
AMEN
*This prayer of blessing, in the Celtic Tradition, was written for the young adults currently being trained in Stony Point, NY with the United Methodist Church. The story of Israel’s Exodus and Exile and relationship with God (“I AM” is the name given to Moses by God in the book of Exodus, and it is a name by which Jews and Christians continue to call on God today) as seen through the stories of the Old Testament.*
