Prayer for the Week

You who are over us,

You who are one of us,

You who are also within us,

May all see you in me also,

May I prepare the way for you,

May I thank you for all that shall fall to my lot,

May I also not forget the needs of others...

Give me a pure heart - that I may see you,

A humble heart - that I may hear you,

A heart of love - that I may serve you,

A heart of faith - that I may abide in you.


--Dag Hammarskjold, 1905-1961
