Lord, help me to live this day – quietly, easily;
to lean on your great strength – trustfully, restfully;
to wait for the unfolding of your will – patiently, serenely;
to meet others – peacefully, joyfully;
to face tomorrow – confidently, courageously.

Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us!

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever
