Good morning! Please join me in a morning prayer.
Albert Schweitzer believes we need to be aware of the sleeping sickness of the soul. He cautions, "As soon as you notice the slightest sign of indifference, the moment you become aware of the loss of a certain seriousness, of longing, of enthusiasm and zest, take it as a warning."
Creator God, the one who gifted us with a number of days to enjoy in this life, help us to remember much of life and its circumstances are given to learn valuable lessons. As this new day unfolds, keep us from indifference, renew our zest and enthusiasm, refresh our hearts and spirits with thankfulness and energy to face the day and all it holds, and remind us that we need to listen to the quiet inner guidance you provide for our well-being. Bless our day now, oh Lord, with these requests that we may learn the beneficial lessons given to us by you for this day.
