DAY 2

MORNING PRAYER

Today, let us pray a prayer for spiritual growth.   

Lord,

Help me to transform my difficulties

into opportunities for growth.

Shine the light of your Spirit on me

that I may grow as the person You are calling me to be.

Inspire me to develop the talents You have given me,

for the benefit and the service

of those people You have placed in my life.

Through Christ Our Lord,

Amen
