Prayer for Wednesday

O God, Creator, Sustainer and Provider,
holy and magnificent is your name,
worthy of all praise and glory,
majestic, magnificent, and mighty.

You are before and after all things.
Blessed be your name, O Lord.

In the midst of my daily madness,
I pray that you will give me
the peace of seeing the good
that is around me,
the wonder of small things.

I pray, O Lord,
that you will give me today
all that I need for today
and that I will see in all that you have given me
the opportunity for blessing others.

Help me to perceive their needs,
to understand their pains and fears,
to not be afraid to draw near to the friendless,
nor be too proud to pray for the powerful,
nor too vain to pray for the weak.

Forgive me, O Lord,
as I forgive others,
lead me in paths of peace and righteousness
and guard my heart from secret sin
that I may dwell in your house forever.
