Hump Day Prayer

Dear Lord Christ, you came to bring us salvation,
                                             to show us the straight path,
                                             to show us the heart of God,
                                             to bring us the Holy Spirit,
                                             to provide us grace and strength for our needs;
help us to wait your arrival through our prayers,
                                           through our service,
                                           through our patience in difficult times,
                                           through our kindness to others,
                                           through our worship;
grant us answers to our prayers, or signs of answers in process, as we pray
                                           for our leaders,
                                           for our families and friends,
                                           for ourselves and our tasks,
                                           for persons we don't like or with whom we're estranged,
                                           for those whom we know are suffering in some way,
                                           for persons we casually meet or pass on the street and in the
                                           stores and restaurants.
Lord, grant us your blessings and help as we seek to be ready to receive Christ, and to share in the banquet of heaven, where he reigns and lives with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one Lord God, for ever. Amen.

(The idea of "Hump Day Prayers" came from my college friend's blog "Le Padre Ver Livre,"
