A Prayer for Saturday, April 27, 2013

Twenty-Eighth Day of Easter

Sometimes, Lord, we let the ugly in the world crowd the beautiful from our view. Help us always to see the beauty in—

--a new day dawning,
--the sun shining,
--pets playing,
--a baby stretching,
--birds singing,
--crickets chirping,
--children playing,
--friends talking,
--music playing,
--people laughing, and
--families celebrating.

At the same time, Lord, don’t let us pretend that the beautiful is all there is. Help us to do what we can to bring your beauty to bear on situations that create ugliness, especially those situations that generate hate, prejudice, hunger, war, poverty, and meaninglessness.
