Prayer 283

Jesus,

This prayer is great.

“O Great Spirit of the East, the land of the rising Sun, Who holds in Your right hand the years of our lives and in Your left the opportunities of each day. Brace us that we may not neglect our gifts nor lose in laziness the hopes of each day and the hopes of each year.”*

So brace me
that I may bear fruit for you.

Amen.
