Prayer for Monday (Annunciation)

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation in the western Christian traditions. The Fast of the First Born begins for Jews at sundown today. The Hindu festival of Holi continues today.

…you are to be unsparing in your generosity
in the way your heavenly Father’s generosity is unsparing.
~ Jesus (Matthew 5:48)

Eternal lover of Thy children,
bring us into Thy life,
make us sharers in Thy love
and transmitters of it.
Help us to become serene and patient
in the midst of our frustrations,
but at the same time
make us heroic adventurers,
brave, gentle, tender,
but without fear
and with radiant faces.

(Rufus Jones, Quaker [1863-1948])
