Morning Prayer

Happy Friday, everyone! Today is the first Friday of Lent. Just a reminder,  we Catholics, 14 years of age and older, have to observe abstinence from meat in our meal/diet today, except for those who are sick or ill or who need it. Beside fish, there are other good sources of protein that we can eat, like beans and other legumes. We can do that. Yes we can, can't we? Giving up something for Jesus in others (not only food but also comfort, pleasure, etc.), even for a day, makes a difference in our penance. Well, I'm just sharing with you something that I know. Thanks for your consideration and understanding.

Another "something" that I'd like to share with you---this Morning Prayer that I've been keeping for a while. I came across this prayer (that appeared on April 23, 2009, in a local military newspaper, The Flagship). Its author wasn't mentioned. Here's Morning Prayer:

Morning Prayer

All through today, O God, help me to be 
quick to praise and slow to criticize;
quick to forgive, and slow to condemn;
quick to share and slow to refuse to give.

Grant me all through today
complete control over my temper,
that I may be slow to anger;
complete control over my tongue,
that I may speak no hasty word.

So grant that all through today, I may help everyone 
and hurt no one, so that I may find true joy in living. 

I do hope and pray that you've been enlightened by this prayer. Until next time around. Take care. May God bless us all always! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!-chris .a.quilpa, 24February2012
