    Lord I thank you for this day,
    I praise you Lord in every way,
    Bless me Father from Heaven above,
    I thank you Jesus for your Love.
    Amen

    Prayer of Jabez

    1 Chronicles 4:

    [10] And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

    Luke 18:

    [10] Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
    [11] The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
    [12] I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
    [13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
    [14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

    Lord God, may we be grateful for our lot,
    and compassionate toward all those who are
    suffering every kind of distress at this
    difficult time. May we hold back nothing, and
    hasten to be the ministers of prayer and mercy,
    like the disciples of Him who went about doing
    good in times of need.

    God's utterance of God within God is God the Word,
    God's utterance outside of God is this world.
    This world then is word, expression, news of God.
    Therefore its end, purpose, purport, meaning is God,
    and its life or work to name and praise God...
    The world and humanity, each after its own manner
    should give God being in return
    for the being God has given it.


    Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J.
