DAY 1

MORNING PRAYER 

Second Week in Advent
What a great gift faith is, dear God!  
Help me to take to heart the words of Pope Francis 
that when I have faith, I can see things as Jesus sees them.  
Also, give me hope to believe that, 
even when I forget to look at life through the eyes of Jesus, 
you are still always with me, loving and forgiving me.  
Amen
