Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 11/27

The day after Thanksgiving...

Forgive us, Lord, 

for yesterday's over-indulgence
and teach us at the same time 
not to waste what's ours in abundance
or hoard the goods 
that others need so much...

And as we plan and shop for Christmas
make us grateful first for all we have
and mindful, then, of others' needs
and generous in the ways we open up
our hearts and wallets to the poor...

Help us find the deeper meaning 
in the days that lie ahead:
what is holy, healing, helpful,
and what makes us truly happy,
in the gift you are for us...
