Prayer of the Day Daily Study Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI

Daily Study Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI

"Lord, you are my strength and my guide. 

Grant me wisdom and understanding. 
Help me to do the best I can, and 
to enjoy this day you have given me. 
Help me to be kind and considerate 
to the people you send into my life, 
and not to give up if things seem difficult.

I first encountered this prayer in the book Finding Life's Purpose: Inspiration for Young People, I have been praying it daily since I read the book. Often more than once a day. It is a wonderful little prayer. Especially with all that is currently going on I believe this is a prayer we could all use in our life daily!

Pope Benedict XVI pray for us.
