Open me, Lord, and enter. Step into my open boat and dive deeply into the parts of me so hidden that I have forgotten them.

Enter me, fill me, spread your presence and grace of forgiveness so that no part of me remains unholy in your sacred moment.

Penetrate my heart, plumbing its depth to more fully align it to your will.

Step into my life, my dreams, my passions, allowing me to leave behind the desert's dryness.

Come in, attaching to my every awareness and available expanse.

You, oh Christ, are a living space. Enter me so that I can enter you.

Enter in.
