I am unique, Lord,
For I am the expression of your love,
And no two moments of love are ever the same.
Each is separate, intimately personal.
Each is an original inimitable reflection
Of your own love-laden personality.
And because I am unique, Lord,
I have a unique contribution to make
To your love-mission on earth.
There are people whom only I can love
In the way that counts -
People waiting for my touch
Eyes searching for the look of understanding
Hands reaching for my extended strength
Arms waiting for my embrace.
Lord, what mystery and magnificence!
That you should take my unique weakness
And use it as a means of communicating your unique power.
That you should select one who needs to be saved
And use him to save others.
Lord, I am so utterly proud of my individual treasure
My divinely lonely talents,
To be that mirrored glance of you
Which alone can save a sinner.
Empower me, Lord,
Cast out shadows
So that only beauty and brightness
Go forth from the unique me
To another you.
