May God's strong hope and promise be present in every stitch, thread, button and zipper of these clothes, including the ragged and the strange as well as the proper and the fashionable. May they make a good first impression. May they express goodwill, friendliness and cheer. May they inspire confidence, dignity and a sense of worthiness. May they allow functionality and practicality. May they provide protection from all kinds of weather. And may they bear witness to God's love whenever and however they are worn.
