DAY 2
MORNING PRAYER 
Lord, 
You have watched me grow in my mother’s womb, 
and I know that you love all that you have made. 
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.
May each of us become a blessing for others.
Amen
