George Appleton – A Prayer for Today

celtic-cross

Grant me O Lord, an understanding heart,
that I may see into the hearts of other people,

and know their strengths and weaknesses,

their hopes and their despairs, their efforts and failures,
their need of love and their need to love.

Through my touch with them grant comfort and hope,
and the assurance that new life begins at any age and any day,
redeeming the past, sanctifying the present,
and brightening the future,
with the assurance of your unfailing love,

brought to me in Jesus Christ,

your Son, my Lord.
Amen.
