Prayer for the Day::February 23

Yesterday after church, a few parents sat and talked with Father Peter for a while. He was talking about using (and how to use) the Book of Common Prayer in our daily lives. He shared one of his favorite morning prayers, found on page 461, and I love it:

"This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be. If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen."

And I add my Amen to that too.
