I found this prayer a few years ago and I keep coming back to it. It meets me right where I am, regardless of where I am. Like a gem, I continue to find new facets that draw me in and hold my gaze.
Prayer for Today
by Francis of Sales (1567-1622)
[Our] God, we give you this day.
We offer You, now, all of the good
that we shall do and we promise to accept,
for love of You,
all of the difficulty that we shall meet.
Help us to conduct ourselves during this day, during this time,
in a manner pleasing to You.
