Prayer for Thursday (Maundy Thursday)

Holidays today: Maundy Thursday for Western Christians; Mahavira-jayanti for Jains; the Fast of the Firstborn begins at sunset for first-born Jewish men.

Into your hands, merciful Lord, we commend ourselves for this day; may we be aware of your presence until its end; remind us that in whatever good we do we are serving you; make us careful and watchful, so that in everything we may discern your will, and, knowing it, may gladly obey.

(from the Gelasian Sacramentary, 8th century)

This Week’s Affirmation:

“I am open and accepting of others.”
