Prayer for Friday

The Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur begins at sundown today. The Zoroastrian festival of Ghambar Paitishem and the Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi continue today.

You are what you do,
not what you say you’ll do.
~ C.G. Jung

Almighty God, Creator of the Universe, we ask that you bless our work where we strive to comfort those who are suffering in body and spirit.
Guide us in helping the elderly, the young and the sick, and help us do so with generosity, tact and joy.
Give us the strength to work diligently and the courage to think and speak with clarity and conviction, without hatred or pride.
Give us the wisdom and the humility to help others according to your will.
Amen

(adapted from a prayer at Montfort Hospital website)
