God of comfort, send your Spirit of wisdom to open our eyes to see the value in the gifts that strengthen and nourish us to live a Christian life of service.
May the Holy Spirit inspire us to perform acts of care and kindness to ease and comfort those around us.
May our hearts also be open to receive that same care and kindness in return. Amen.
From Sojourners Verse & Voice email dated March 26, 2014
“Verse and Voice” is a daily resource for prayer and meditation provided by the folks of Sojourners. It is available as a daily email. More information here. I especially like that this prayer petitions God to open our hearts to receive care and kindness in return. I have found that those to whom I minister give so much to me in return if i am open to their gifts. ~Fr. Dan
Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
