‘The Changing Moods of the Human Heart’

When the days seem plodding and dull, sometimes a prayer like this makes its way into our sight line and lifts our eyes to gaze beyond ourselves.

God in heaven,
God of power and
Lord of mercy,
from whose fullness
we have received
so generously,
direct our steps
in our everyday efforts.
May the changing
moods of the human heart
and the limits that
our failings impose on hope
never blind us to you,
source of every good.
Faith gives us the promise
of peace and makes known
the demands of love.
Remove the selfishness
that blurs the vision of faith.
Grant this through our Lord
and brother, Jesus.

Adapted from Living With Christ (Feast of St. Stephen of Hungary)
