mlnnBv8Generous God,

Let me receive this day as a gift:
Each conversation a chance to connect with your Spirit in someone else;
Each obligation a sign that I am appreciated, trusted, part of a community;
Each bite of food an invitation to gratitude for earth’s resources and human effort;
Each note of music a hymn of praise;
Each challenge an opportunity for growth;
Each frustration an invitation to prayer.
May my work be faithful.
May my play be joyful.
May I know your peace.
