Today We Pray

Dear Heavenly Father, Your love embraces everyone. Through the Resurrection of Your Son, You call me and all who pray with me into Your wonderful light. Dispel our darkness and make us a people with one heart and one voice, forever singing Your praise.

You know my weakness and failings, and that without Your help I can accomplish nothing for the good of souls, my own and others'. Grant me, therefore, the help of Your grace, according to my particular needs this coming week. Enable me to see the tasks You will set before me in the daily routine of my life, and let me set my hand to these tasks with the vigor and joy of one with whom you abide.

All through this day and in the week to come, O Lord, by the power of your quickening Spirit, let me touch the lives of others for good, whether through the word I speak, the prayer I speak, or the life I live. Please grant us continued grace and blessings during the coming day. This I ask in the name of Jesus Christ, Your only son, who has saved me from death.
