evening prayer

January 1, 2008

God of all creation, everything I see around me, everything I hear, taste, feel, and experience — everything that I am — all of this comes from you.  I am grateful for all the blessings, challenges, and opportunities you have given me.  I ask you for the grace to face the obstacles and successes that I encounter throughout my life.  May I see it all through your eyes.  I ask this through your son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

–Advent and Christmas with Thomas Merton
