Daily Prayer 



Teach me, Father, to be content
In the here and now
Before life is spent.

Grant me power to appreciate
The abundant life
Jesus gives through faith.

Grant the vision to clearly see
Beyond the present
Through eternity.

Take my hand and gently guide
On life’s narrow path
Not death’s way so wide

Grant the humility to wear
My Lord’s easy yoke
Working in his care.

Enter my heart and make it pure
Fill it with desire
To share truth so sure.

Let Eternal hope shine so bright
That the world’s darkness
Yields to heaven’s light.
