Two Words from Morning Prayer

| | Comments (2)

Two words that struck home particularly hard as I did this morning's prayer:

Let your splendor rest upon us today,
direct the work of our hands.

may everything we do
begin with your inspiration
and continue withyour saving help.
Let our work always find its origin in you
and through you reach completiion.

May everything we do find its roots in the Lord and its branches holding up the Kingdom of God, like strong pillars. I have a work to do today that is not to my liking. May God make it easy and temper it with grace, strength, humor, and conviction and may no one suffer from it.

I like both of those.

I have to get back into that habit. The Hours are rich in good words with which to start the day.


I was inspired by your own appended prayer.
Thank you!
