Lord your words are spirit and life.
They give me the strength and wisdom I need
to be open to all the possibilities
that I will encounter today.
Help me to witness to your goodness
and kindness to those I meet today.
You have given me and them the grace
we need to bring our families
and communities closer to you.
May we be open to hearing your word
and allowing your Spirit to guide
and nourish us today.
