Friday

Opening Prayer:
All-powerful Father, guide us with your love as we await the coming of your Son.

Keep us faithful that we may be helped through life and brought to salvation.

We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Closing Prayer:
Jesus, you shine a light into the darkness of my life.

I am like a plant in limited sun, and I find my being turning toward you longing to be closer, wanting only to draw near.

Help me to be faithful in the big decisions of my life and in the smallest of ways I live out each day.

My goal is salvation, Lord, and I am painfully aware I can't do that myself.

Teach me to be patient, to be faithful.

I know there is so much more grace I need and so much more you want to give me.

Help me to be open to it and to recognize the many gifts you give me each day.

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.

Amen.
