I praise you for being my Lord,
my Brother, my Husband, my God,
the great Gardener of my heart.
Would you make me your companion
in the garden you have prepared for me.
Teach me what belongs within the garden and without.
Help me to see where my garden walls have been broken,
grant me grace and strength to repair them.
I pray for your wisdom to bring under your care
desolate plots of weeds and rebellious roots.
Show me the plants and trees
you have called me to cultivate,
teach me the fruits that you delight in
how I may grow them best,
help me to plant the seeds and talents you’ve given me
that you may receive the greatest harvest and return.
All of my garden, what you’ve placed in my stewardship,
I give to you —
my heart, mind, soul, body, time, talents, and energy,
I surrender my relationship and my life to you today.
May you receive the fullness of your inheritance in me.
I bless you Lord.
