Prayer for New Perspective


Loving God, Throughout the day today, Help me to look at things a little differently.

Yes, there will be violence in the world; Help me to focus on being more gentle.

The weather will bring hardship to many; Help me to accomplish what I need to do without complaint.

The poor and homeless will remain; Help me to make room in my heart for anyone I have shunned.

People will suffer misfortune today; Help me to notice blessings I sometimes take for granted.

I may find myself feeling pretty good or feeling downcast today; Help me to look to You with greater faith, no matter what.
