Someone defined a crisis as an event after which things will never be the same; a crisis can therefore be a positive or negative event since either kind can change the course of a life.
Prepare us as well as we can be prepared, O God, for whatever crises we will encounter today.
Help us to keep our eyes open so that we don’t miss the crises that will confront us, especially given that seemingly small events can wind up having a big effect.
Enable us to be willing to accept and to work with whatever changes we experience as the result of our crises and always to seek to know how you are working your will out in whatever we go through.
In all things, let our trust in you grow deeper and deeper.
