I am so so enjoying the little book of prayers the Bishop's wife passed on to me for this year. I will pass it on at year end to someone else I think, so it can be shared around. Here is today's entry:
"Lord, make me a tool of Your peace. Instead of the hammer of judgement, let me bring the balm of love. Instead of bitterness and resentment, help me to quickly forgive. When doubt misaligns my emotions, level me with faith. When I cannot find an answer, let me know Your great hope."
