|My offering will be:|
For all of Your sheep that do not know You and therefore do not communicate with You, I will communicate.
For all Your sheep, who cry for their transgressions and deviations, small and large, whether in knowledge or in ignorance, I will cry.
For all of Your sheep, who sink in the quicksand of sin, losing their purity, I will lament.
For all Your sheep, who sleep the blissful sleep of negligence and indifference, I will stay awake.
For all Your sheep, who blaspheme You and despise You, because they never truly knew You, I will hymn You and will give You glory.
For all Your sheep, held captive to whatever passion, on bended knee I will beg You to free them from their dreaful bonds.
For all Your sheep, who fall into the hands of wolves, with agony and desperation, I cry out to You:
Lord, Lord, Lord, save them! Resue them!
For all Your sheep, who find themselves in hopeless situations, in isolation, in inability to think and unable to find a saving escape from the labyrinth in which they find tehmselves, I will pray to You.
