Daily Prayer

Today’s Prayer:

To love you, O Lord our God, with all our heart and soul and mind, we must love our neighbor as ourselves, and take as our neighbors all those you love: the helpless, the strangers, and the poor.  Help us to recognize in these less fortunate than us the presence of your love. Establish deep in our hearts your compassionate justice, that the measure of our love may be like yours for us, boundless and unconditional. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thought Of The Day:

Dear Lord, how we’ve waited for this vacation, and now it’s finally here.  Thank You, Lord, for the opportunity to take a break from our daily routines and to replenish our minds, bodies and souls so they we may better serve You.  Sometimes our expectations for vacations are unrealistic,, and we find ourselves disappointed when things don’t go our way.  Help us not to worry about having the ‘perfect’ vacation but to relax and enjoy every moment, whatever it may bring.  We are grateful for the joys that await us-whether they be the beauty of your creation, recreation with family or friends, or peace and solitude.  Watch over us and protect us as we travel, and brings us safely home again-refreshed and renewed.  Amen--
