Daily Prayer for August 1, 2009
Lord, I pray that I might be made whole again. I pray for health so I can walk freely upon Your earth, so I can breathe deeply of the air that sustains me, so I can see clearly the beauty of all creation. I pray for the soothing of my pains, less for my own comfort than for Your glory, that I might accomplish with my life good work in Your name. Yet if the suffering will not pass, grant me the courage to make peace with my afflictions, that I might seek always to serve You. Amen.
