Prayer of the Day

May you be blessed with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart.

May you be blessed with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.

May you be blessed with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war,
so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

And may you be blessed with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world,
so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
