Prayer of the day

For whom this day do we need to pray?

For the people answering customer service hotlines...
For everyone in debt...
For those who work outside in the cold...
For those who are homebound...
For everyone trying to make a budget or a payroll...
For those who are imprisoned...
For child soldiers...
For those who prepare meals...
For Rod Blagojevich...
For doubters, and still more for the cynical...
For all those who work for the church...
For musicians and artists and poets...
For AA and NA and OA and GA and DA and all those seeking recovery...
For the past and present readers of this blog...
For prophets...
For parents, siblings, children...

And for ourselves, dear Lord, that you may dwell in us. That we may have what we need. That we may be known by others. That love may grow in our lives and relationships. That prayer be often on our lips, that we be blessed to give and to receive, and that you see us safely home to the peace we have in Christ Jesus. Amen.
