Short morning prayer

Lord,
In the silence of this new day,
I come to ask for PEACE, WISDOM, and STRENGTH.
Today, I wish to look at the world
with eyes beaming with love.
To be understanding, meek, and wise.
To see your children beyond appearances
as You see them yourself.
Close my ears to all calumny.
Guard my tongue from all malice.
May only thoughts that bless
dwell in my spirit.
May I be so kind and so full of joy,
that all who come near me may feel your presence.
Clothe me with your beauty, Lord
that throughout this day I may reveal You.
Amen.

Cardinal Suenens
