Hands

Albrecht Durer Hands

Albrecht Durer, Hands

Today I offer my hands

to God

 

Blessed be the work of these hands.

Blessed be the hands that have held pain

and have soothed hurt with compassion.

Blessed be the hands that have cared for others

and touched the lonely with love.

 

Blessed be these hands that have served in the past

and continue to hold the promise of the future.

Blessed be these hands that have warmly welcomed strangers

at our doors.

 

Blessed be these hands that have clapped in affirmation and praise of others.

Blessed be these hands that have held mummy’s and brought hope for our future.

Blessed be these hands that have made sticky, messy, glittery creations that tell of the love of God.

 

Blessed be these hands that have prayed for others,

known and unknown.

Blessed be these hands that have served in worship

at the altar,

at the door,

at the lectern,

in the choir and at the organ.

 

Blessed be my hands

ready to do your will

today.
