Prayer for all the Jesus feminists

The following is an excerpt from Sarah Bessey's (oh so wonderful) book Jesus Feminist:

"I call you to joy, friend.

I set you apart in your right-now life for the daily work of liberation and love. Proclaim the Kingdom of God with your hands and your feet and your voice to every soul in your care and influence. May your soul long for prayer and for the Scriptures, may you keep secrets, may you give away your money, may you share your meals, and may you sit alone in silence outside under the sky and be satisfied. May you change the bedding in the middle of the night without anger after yet another childish accident, may you hold babies and comfort the dying and be the voicr of knowledge tempered with grace and wisdom, and may you never forgot how to sing and be silly. May you make room in your life to be inconvenienced and put out, and may you be Jesus with skin on for a few people
 May you be fearless, and may you eat good food."
