Friday, December 4th

 MORNING PRAYER

In life, we may not be able to do grand things, but we can all do little things to make this world a better place. Think about the things you are good at and challenge yourself to use your talents to make the world better. Throughout the Bible, we hear how we are to help those who are poor and vulnerable in our society. We are asked to help. We should look for ways to help, even in any small way, those who are struggling and hungry.     

Loving God, 

May we always remember 

that by serving the women, men and children 

most vulnerable to poverty and injustice, 

we are loving and serving you. 

Help us to help, in whatever small way we can, 

the poor in our community especially during this Advent season.  

Through Christ our Lord.

Amen
