But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. (1 Chronicles 29:14)Heavenly Father, if it be not your will, frustrate our plan quickly, fully, clearly and gracefully. But, if it be your will, then, we pray you give us the clarity of vision, the determination of mind and heart, and the wherewithal to accomplish your purpose speedily, fully and exactly as you would have it. May all we propose be brought to fulfillment according to your design and with the help and inspiration of your good grace. We pray in your holy name, O Lord. Amen.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4: 6, 7)Each weekday, the homily from Daily Mass at Holy Cross Family Ministries is shared online.
