God of wisdom and might, your ways are our delight. We ponder your Word and pray: Teach us your ways, O God.

Help us to embrace simplicity in our daily lives, that our ordinary actions may be undertaken in a spirit of love.

Teach us your ways, O God.

Remove the hardness of our hearts, that we may be open to one another and to all that life brings us.

Teach us your ways, O God.

Fulfill the longing of the suffering and the sick, that in their weakness they may experience the peace of Christ.

Teach us your ways, O God.

Our Father . . .

May the love of God, the peace of Christ, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with us and remain with us forever. Amen.
