|Morning Coffee by George Mendoza|
Good morning, good God!
I come to offer you the joys of all
who will, today, find the help they need
from you and from their friends...
I offer you the thanks of all
who find the time today for rest,
for relaxation and even time to play...
I offer you the heavy hearts
of those bent low by sorrow, grief and loss:
the hearts of all who weep today and call upon your name...
I offer you the peace of all
who will this day find healing, hope and trust
in you and in your mercy...
I offer you the wounded hearts
of those who've lost so much in love,
in promises not kept and now long broken...
I offer you the faith of all
who reach out for your gentle hand
when reaching for your touch is all they know...
I offer you the hope of hearts
who seek your wisdom in their choices
and your peace when theirs is gone...
I offer you the love of hearts
who trust all shall be well,
who keep your word in faith and trust...
I offer you the hearts of all who pray these words today:
receive and bless and heal with grace
our joyful, sorrowed souls and all our words and deeds...
Such is my morning offering, Lord:
keep me faithful to my prayer this day
and gentle with all those whose paths cross mine...
