you encompass us in a mother's love
and guide and protect us each moment.
We laud and magnify your Name,
and thank you for the blessings You shower upon us.
Create in us the will to love,
to encourage, to persevere,
to bring about your kingdom.
Open our eyes and our hearts
to our brothers and sisters who need our help.
Help us to see Jesus in the soul in pain,
the homeless wanderer,
the person right next to us.
Help us to manifest your love in the world.
And we ask your blessing upon those
whom we raise up in our prayers.
