Prayer: From the Christophers

Loving God, grant that I may be a bearer of Christ Jesus, your Son. Allow me to warm up the often cold, impersonal scene of modern life with your burning love. Strengthen me by your Holy Spirit to carry out my mission of changing the world or some part of it for the better. Despite my failures, bring home to me that my advantages are your blessings to be shared with others. Make me more energetic in setting right what I find wrong with the world instead of complaining about it. Nourish in me a practical desire to build up rather than tear down, to reconcile instead of polarize, to go out on a limb rather than crave security. Never let me forget that it is far better to light one candle than to curse the darkness, and to join my light one day with yours.
