MORNING PRAYER

With the Christmas season over, we now return to ordinary time until the start of Lent.  This is a time for us to stop and reflect on how faith helps us every day, as we live our lives. 

Loving God, 

Inspire me to live in your presence every day 

so that I may share your outlook 

and do the ordinary things of life in an extraordinary way. 

May this, Lord, be my prayer today. 

Amen
