In the silence of the dawn

Prayer of Blessed Mariam Baouardy

Lord Jesus Christ, in the silence of this new dawn I come to you and ask you with humble trust for your peace, your wisdom, your strength.

Grant that I may contemplate the world today with eyes full of love. Help me to understand that all the glory of the Church springs from your Cross as its source. Let me welcome my neighbor as the person whom you wish to love through me. Grant me the willingness to serve him with devotion and to unfold all the goodness that you have placed within him

Let my words radiate gentleness and my entire behavior be a source of peace. Let there dwell in my spirit only those thoughts that spread blessings. Stop up my ears to every malicious word and ever ill-willed criticism. May my tongue serve only to highlight the good.

Grant above all, O Lord, that I may be so full of joy and good will that all who meet me will feel both your presence and love. Clothe me with the radiance of your goodness and your beauty, so that I may reveal you to others in the course of this day. Amen.
