Almighty God, Who knows the questions that often haunt us, the longings for which we yearn, the problems for which we have no satisfactory answer, grant us Your help in keeping with Your knowledge of our needs. Cleanse us of all that is sinful or unworthy and inspire us to reach for loftier goals. Open our hearts to Your aid as we strive to perform faithful and well our daily tasks. We pray in the Name of Him Whose love for us endures forever. Amen.
