Prayer of the Day
|Today I pray for all who suffer.
For AIDS orphans and old people.
For working Americans who can't
both pay rent and buy food.
For Iraqi families who have lost
parents and children and for
United States families who have lost
parents and children. My heart is
especially touched by ________.
Hold them in your compassion.
I ask for the gift of HOPE. Loving God,
may I embrace my own suffering and
realize I am part of the suffering world.
Holy Spirit, you who live in the family
of the Trinity, help me recognize I have
family all over the earth.
