The Daily Prayer for THURSDAY, August 13, 2020
The Daily Prayer
THURSDAY, August 13, 2020

In 1957, following the Supreme Court’s decision against racial segregation in Brown v. Board of Education, African-American students in Arkansas were admitted to Little Rock High School for the first time.

This is a prayer of Charles de Foucauld: “Father, I abandon myself into your hands. Do with me what you will. Whatever you may do, I will thank you. I am ready for all; I accept all. Let only your will be done in me, as in all your creatures. And I’ll ask nothing else, my Lord.”

Lord, you came as a child to lead us toward your kingdom. We thank you for the dreams of the young. Fill us with wonder and give us a childlike audacity, even in the face of trials and persecution, to believe in another world despite the evidence around us, and to watch the evidence change. Amen.
