Eighth Day of Christmas
Thank you that you purposed to do something about our condition and situation; thank you that, even though you had to pay a heavy price, you followed through on what you purposed to do.
Help us to learn from your intentionality; help us, when we realize the price that love demands from us, to follow through and to do what we can do—even if the cost to us is great.
First, though, give us eyes that see and hearts that feel what our sisters and brothers are experiencing and especially what is hurting them. Then, show us what love calls us to do. Then, give us strength and commitment to do what needs to be done.
