Prayer of the Day for THURSDAY, December 14, 2017
God, grant us the grace to be patient and vigilant in watching, waiting, and listening attentively, so that we won't miss Christ when he comes knocking at our door. Remove whatever hinders us from receiving the gifts which the Savior brings — Joy, peace, justice, mercy, and love. And let us always remember that these are gifts that are only received by giving; let us remember, during this season and throughout the year, the downtrodden, the oppressed, the outcast, the prisoner, the weak, and the defenseless, with my prayers and with my substance. In the name of Christ we pray, Amen.
