Dear God, thinking about attending to all the small trials throughout the day I will face brings with it anxiety and sullen resentment. Imagining my chores, errands, and challenges vexes me.
Lord, you call me to be a being of love, to bring charity to my life. Cure my attitude, that I may be loving. Take away al these gnawing emotions. I look high and low for problems to which to affix my attention. Let me spend the same mental energy seeking joys to notice.
Lord, let gratitude and love fill me, that my small, self-centered impulses become expelled, erased.
Let me be more loving, more giving, more grateful, more charitable today.
Thy will be done.
