prayer for the week
O God, we welcome a new summer day, filled with beauty and endless possibilities. We begin this week grateful for all those who touch our lives with encouragement, teamwork and optimism.
Remind us today that our attitude will have much to do with how we experience our day and week. May we focus on the the "cans" of life more than the "cannots". May we see the "sunshine" more than the "clouds". May we see the "flowers" more than the "weeds".
Help us to nurture a grateful spirit and attitude in our work, among our family members, and strangers we meet. Remind us to be gentle with ourselves as we seek to have a "right" attitude throughout this day and week.
