Ecclesiastes 1:2-11

Psalm 90

Luke 9:7-9

Prosper the work of our hands!  Ps. 90:17

Lord, I offer to you all my thoughts, words and actions this day.  I thank you for another day of life.  Your gift of time is given to me with love for a purpose.  I am an important part of your plan to build your kingdom.  No matter where I am on the road to you I have a reason for living.  You have placed me in this time and this place.  You have given me unique gifts and experiences.  You have helped me develop as your precious and glorious child in faith.  Continue to guide me along the path to full life with you.  I will make mistakes along the way and make some wrong turns.  But you pick me up every time I fall.  Lord Jesus, I believe you will provide all the grace I will need today to accomplish your will.  Guide my decisions and show me what’s truly important in life.  May this day be an acceptable prayer to you from start to finish.    I rely on you, my Jesus, to prosper the work of my hands.  St. Vincent de Paul, pray for us.  Amen.
