Chaplain's prayer for our week

O God, when our world feels tough and challenging remind us that there is always someone with a greater struggle.

Remind us that in thinking of others our concerns and worries are lessened and a balanced perspective on life comes.

God, help us to notice all those around us doing good things and remind them of such.

When we observe someone offering a smile; a kind word; an optimistic attitude; a random act of kindness; going the extra mile; impress on us, O God, to share our observation.

Remind us to find reasons to say such things as “Thank you”; “Good Job”; “I’m impressed”; “You are such a gift”.

May we intentionally seek to lift the spirit of others this week by letting them know the kindness they express has not gone unnoticed. In so doing, may we discover our own spirits lifted.
