A Prayer To Start Your Day

Eternal Lord of all things, I feel your gaze on me. I sense that your mother stands near, and the great beings crowd around You.

Angels and powers and martyrs and saints.  If you help me, please, I would like to make an offering:

I want it to be my desire, and my choice, provided that You want it this way, to walk this earth the way You walked it.

I know that you lived in a little town, without luxury, without great education.  I know that you refused political power.

I know that you suffered: Leaders rejected You.  Friends abandoned You.  You failed. I know.  I hate to think about it.

None of it looks very romantic to me, or very useful.  But it seems to me a toweringly wonderful thing that Your divine majesty might call me to follow after You!   – St. Ignatius

I'm passionate about helping people realize that God wants to make something new of them and bring about a permanent transformation in their lives: body, mind, and spirit.
