Hallowed be thy name

                   You shall not make wrongful use
                    of the name of the Holy One your God.
                                                     
—Exodus 20. 7

                    …hallowed be thy name…  
                                                    —Mathew 6.9

Loving Mystery, I surrender all claim to you,
to make you mine.
I surrender all my names for you
that get me what I want.

Holy One, may all I do today hallow your name.
May every thought and word reflect your love,
may every act honor your presence,
may my very being proclaim your praise.

To all who see or hear me,
and where I am only before the angels,
and in those secret places
where no one knows but you,
by your grace in me
in everything I do today
hallowed be your name.
