Prayer for the Day

Dear God,

I am a person with a little voice, but not with a little heart.

I see
hurting families
people in need
people in pain
people who need help
people who want to help but don't know how
and my heart aches for them all.
I want to wave a magic wand
to make the world a better place.

That doesn't exist, though, so I look for small ways to help with my little voice.
I share the messages of those who need to be heard.
I try to let as many people as I can know about things that are unjust.
I try to brighten the days of people who are out there in the world fighting the good fight against bad systems and situations and, yes, sometimes, even bad people.

As the saying goes, "I am only one, but I am one. I can't do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will."

Give me grace, God, to speak. Give me a voice and words to speak. Let me do what I can. Then I can rest knowing I've done what you asked of me.
