A Prayer for Monday

O Holy God,
Open unto me
Light for my darkness
Courage for me fear
Hope for my despair.

O loving God,
Open unto me
Wisdom for my confusion
Forgiveness for my sins
Love for my hate.

O God of peace,
Open unto me
Peace for my turmoil
Joy for my sorrow
Strength for my weakness.

O generous God
Open my heart to receive all your gifts. Amen.
–Howard Thurman (1899-1981)
