Open hands readily give and receive. May we remain open to God's in-breaking.
God you heap your love upon us like a mother providing for her family’s need,
embracing her child with tenderness.
Forgive us when, like spoiled children, we treat your generosity as our right,
or hug it possessively to ourselves.
Give us enough trust to live securely in your love and to share it with others
in open-handed confidence that your grace will never run out.
