Prayer for Tuesday (Hildegard von Bingen)

Today is the Christian feast of St. Hildegard von Bingen. The Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi continues today.

I ask not for a lighter burden,
but for broader shoulders.
~ Jewish Proverb

O Great Father we are in great need;
Now therefore we implore, we implore you
Through your Word, by which you have
Filled us with those things we need;
Now it may please you Father for it befits you
To consider us with your help,
So that we might not fail and lest your name
Might be blackened in us
And through your name, deign to help us.

(Hildegard von Bingen)
