Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 11/27

The day after Thanksgiving...

Forgive us, Lord,
any over-indulgence at yesterday's table
and teach us not to waste the plenty that we have
or hoard the goods that others need so much...

As we plan and shop for Christmas
make us grateful for what's already ours
and keep us mindful of others' basic needs...

Tempt us to be more than generous
in opening our hearts and wallets
to those who truly need a share
of all we have in such abundance...

Help us find the deeper meaning
in the days that lie ahead:
    what's holy, healing, helpful, 
    what makes us truly happy 
    in the gift you are for us,
    in our giving of ourselves...
