Eternal Father, we turn from the hurry and noise of the world, to thank You for Your blessings and in evidence of our dependence upon You. Give us open minds to receive from You a wisdom greater than our own. Hour by hour show us the way of goodness and truth. Help us this day to meet its duties with fidelity, its difficulties with fortitude, its joys with gratitude. May the action here taken, the causes here served and the decisions here made be fruitful for Your people and altogether pleasing in Your sight.
In the holy Name of our Master we pray. Amen.
