For the stories that reflect, interpret, and expand our stories we give you thanks.
Thank you for the books, films, and songs in which we experience those stories.
Thank you for your Book in which we find such stories.
Thank you for other people with whom we share such stories.
Help us to watch, to listen, and to learn; help us to remember that our story is always part of a much larger story. Help us to look for the ways in which our story connects with other stories.
Give us trust in the great story that you are writing and give us trust that our story matters in that story.
