Abba, Father,
thank you that I am far from complete.

Thank you for the pleasure of reading,
the joy of learning,
the thrill of discovery.

Thank you that there is so much yet
to look forward to,
ideas to have,
skills to develop,
things to try.

I know there will come a time
when by your grace all things will be fulfilled
and I will be complete,
and will know as fully as I am known...
I thank you heartily for that promise
even as I thank you for the present incompleteness
that characterizes my life,
in Jesus' name, amen.
