Prayer

Guide me, O God

Rouse me, O God,
from the slumber of night.
Fill me with creative energy  and vision to discern
how I might best fulfill the mission you have entrusted to me this day.

In the words of Saint Mother Theodore, remind me
that I do not have to do “all the good possible,” but show
me the specific work you are asking of me today.

Strengthen me to walk with  those who need a companion
because they are weak.
Let me encourage those who see wrongs to be righted,
and prophets who can lift their voices to call for justice and peace,
but need allies to stand with them in their efforts.

Show me clearly the path Providence
is unfolding for me today.
Grant me the courage to walk it,
fearlessly as you want me to.
Amen
