Wednesday, May 5th

MORNING PRAYER

Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy. It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity. 

Lord Jesus, 

as you opened the eyes of the blind man,

may our eyes be opened

so that we can see the many wonderful things around us

and in our own lives. 

Through Christ our Lord.

Amen
