Each day calls me back to myself, back to the heart of hope and the life of faith, back to what is needful and what is good, whether I feel ready or not. Love, sweep away my hesitations and my worries that keep from doing what I can in each and every day. Wisdom, help me learn to embrace each day whole-heartedly, with all my questions and all my failings and all my frailty. Mercy, accompany me to turn me away from hard-heartedness, to open my hand and my heart generously to each and to all. Each day calls me. May I be ready, and when I am not ready, may I still gladly answer. Amen.
