Loving Father, I gather in Your presence.
I invite stillness into my heart.
May I breathe in Your peace and breathe out all stress and worry.
Holy Spirit, speak to me through this time in prayer so that the ear of my heart may understand God’s will.

Cherish and Challenge:
Cherish: Who in your life is a channel of God’s peace, love and hope? How have they enriched your life?
Challenge: Do I focus on the wrongs of others or do I offer forgiveness?
God of love,
Please let all of me be an instrument of peace in the world. So that wherever I go, if I encounter hate, allow me to be a source of love. If I am wronged by others, then let me forgive those who have wronged me. Where I encounter doubt, let me inspire faith in others with my bravery. Where I find sadness and despair, let me be a source of joy and hope, like a single light radiantly illuminating a dark room.
I ask for the strength to console others, more than I want to be consoled myself; to understand more than I desire to be understood; and to love, more than I desire to be loved. For it Is in giving that we receive and in forgiving that we are forgiven. Only by overcoming the ego, the “big me”, “the self”, are we born to eternal life.
We pray this in the name of love, Jesus Christ,
