Monday, March 7:
Lord, I will serve You where You are
In the homeless man on the bench
In the hungry child before me
In the forgotten neighbors living alone
In those who ask for help
Lord, I will serve You where I am.
Tuesday, March 8:
Father in heaven,
Whose Word I know,
Help me to do Your will;
To serve, to love, to forgive,
For Your sake alone, not mine.
Wednesday, March 9:
Of all the gifts You have given me,
All of them to be shared,
There are none greater than love,
That gives of self,
And knows no bounds.
Lord, knowing Your great mercy,
There is nothing I cannot forgive.
Thursday, March 10:
Lord, I bring many needs before You,
Knowing You are the source of all good,
And trusting in Your Divine Providence.
Father, do not give me what I ask for.
Rather, give me what it is pleasing to You,
In accordance with Your plan for my life.
Not my will but Yours be done.
Friday, March 11:
Two coats are in my closet, Lord,
For when it’s cold outside.
Two coats I bought to keep me warm,
And one of them is mine.
So many gifts from You, O Lord,
So many ways to shine.
I have so many gifts, O Lord,
And none of them are mine.
I have one life to live, O Lord,
No practice life before.
One life to give away in love,
And all of it is Yours.
