O God who guides us, help us to feel your presence as we determine our path today. As we find ourselves making decisions that affect others to measure them against the canon of love. May we ask whether it builds people up, whether it feeds them literally or figuratively. Let us recognize those times when not immediate decision is necessary and that we are called to not make a judgment at this time. May we listen more than we speak. Give us hearts and minds that see the possibility in this day and in the future that may be decided by our actions. May we be excited about the hope that his day brings and use it for the once in a lifetime opportunity each day you affords us. All this we ask in the name of the God who walks with us. Amen.
