Praise You, God, our Tutor

for instructing us in the love life
You want us to live,
for training us through
Christ Jesus and Your Word,
for coaching us with the help
of Holy Spirit and the counsel
of good friends, who have
suffered through the ache
of daily living and have
come to know You well.

Praise You, God,
our Personal Trainer
for coaxing our inner selves
to keep going with You,
for teaching us to ask
during each difficult exercise:
What’s the loving thing to do?
