Dear Lord, my husband enjoyed
the men’s and women’s
college basketball tournaments on T.V.
Lord, we know little about you
through your teens and twenties.
You may have played games
while growing up with other young men
in and around Nazareth
before your public ministry began
at about the age of 30.
Guide young people, like my grandson,
as they mature, that they may discover the joy
of serving in your kingdom. Amen.
And Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in divine and human favor.
Hymn: O Young and Fearless Prophet
