The Servant's Prayer
Good Morning Dear Lord,
Thank you for the precious gift
You have given me this morning
-my life- to live fully and joyfully
one more day! Please give me the
grace to be kind and patient today
that I may see beyond worldly
appearances, so that I may
encounter your holy presence
in each person I meet.
Close my ears dear Father to all
gossip. Seal my lips to all
judgments and criticisms that my
words will only bless all about
me and warm the coldest heart.
Let my actions be so just, my
feelings be so tender, my conduct
be so humble and true to
your will that throughout this
day I will be a reflection of
your heavenly mercy and love.
