Prayer for the new day

Praying Hands

Praying Hands by Peter Paul Rubens

Dear Lord, please give me

A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;

A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would be the poorer;

A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;

An understanding heart;

A sense of humor;

Time for quiet, silent meditation;

A feeling of the presence of God;

The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
with the wisdom to recognize them when they come.

Amen. — Anonymous

I pray that I prove to be a wise and understanding friend.
