A Morning Prayer for Optimists: Bishop Philip Huggins
Your invitation is so beautiful in the gift of our life.
Simply that we love one another as you continue to love us.
Our hope is rekindled as we dwell in your Word and in your Blessed Spirit, this new day dawning.
Dwelling thus, we pray we can bring optimism to those struggling for a better state of mind.
We know humanity, as the poets say, “is a family that has barely met”.
May, your love in us, help bring everyone together.
So we are a unified humanity, meeting each other’s needs with sweet delight.
Imagining this, with childlike trust and wonder, may we have the grace so as to ensure this future is irresistible now.
May it be said of us: “Since they didn’t know it was impossible, they did it!”
All this we pray in Jesus Holy Name,
