MY FINGERPRINT


(A good citizen's prayer and reflection for the May 10, 2010 National Elections)

A simple reminder to me about WHO I AM. It tells me that I am precious and unique. No one else in the world has a fingerprint exactly similar to mine. If only for a day between now and the day of the elections on May 10, 2010, I will use my fingerprint remembering who I am-precious, unique, priceless, whom nobody can buy. Then I need to be valued as such.

MY FINGERPRINT

A simple reminder to me about WHO MY NEIGHBORS ARE. It tells me that they too are precious and they ought to be respected and involved. They have the same rights as I have. If only for a day between now and the day of the elections on May 10, 2010, I will use my fingerprint remembering who my neighbors are-friends, brothers and sisters. Then I need to respect and protect them.

MY FINGERPRINT

A simple reminder to me about WHAT KIND OF WORLD I LIVE IN. It tells me that I live in a world patterned according to a meaningful and beautiful design. The blueprint that gives sense to my life is not money or material treasures but true values of truth, love, justice and peace. If only for a day between now and the day of the elections on May 10, 2010, I will use my fingerprint remembering the world I live in-meaningful and beautiful world which is the only one I've got. Then I need to value this world for what it truly is with love and care.

MY FINGERPRINT

A simple reminder to me about WHO DESIGNED EVERYTHING. It tells me that God is the Great Designer who designed my unique fingerprint for a purpose. God gifted me with an indelible mark for the purpose of setting me apart as God's beloved. If only for a day between now and the day of the elections on May 10, 2010, I will use my fingerprint remembering God's permanent mark in me-the mark of love which nobody can take away from me. Then I am called to use my fingerprint always for a good purpose, always for God's divine purpose. Amen.
