There has been a prayer on an index card that I’ve carried from desk to desk, office to office, book to book, that came from my time at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. I’m not sure where I found it, so I’m not able to reference it’s source. What I do know is that the prayer is written by Saint Therese, Saint of the Little Ways. I believe there are parts missing that didn’t fit on my card. The heart of the prayer still resounds.
“May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you…May you be content knowing you are a child of God…Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and to love. It is there for each and every one of us.”
