Daily prayer:

Living Lord,

thank you for our hobbies,

and the different things we enjoy.

Thank you for the interest of building up a collection;

thank you for the joy of stretching our bodies in sports;

thank you for the satisfaction of making things.

We praise you for the things we do alone,

that are special to us,

and for the fun of working together.

Thank you, Lord, for those who teach and help us,

for those who give us new ideas.

Lord, there is so much to discover and enjoy - thank you!




St. Joseph and St. Francis: Pray for us.
