Prayer: Jesus, help us to continue to prepare a place for You in the whole geography of our lives; there are hills and valleys that need to be made straight; there are closets of darkness that need to be lighted. Jesus, we can’t be satisfied with having You in only part of our lives; we need You to fill us in everything we do, in every place we live. We know that it isn’t enough for us to be with You in church, at prayer time, but we must live with You and through You, all day and all night. Thank You for this season of the year, for reminding us of Your total love for us. Amen.
The prayer is taken from Fr. Killian Speckner OFMConv., THE PRAYERS OF FATHER KILLIAN – A Franciscan Missionary’s Guide to Daily Devotion, Paraclete Press, 1986.
