Make us aware, O God. Let us see the world around us today with new eyes. May we see those in need and respond with our whole being to lift them up. Allow us to be present to those around us in a way that helps them know that they are special to us. Let us know when we need to simply listen and do nothing more than nod our heads. Help us to speak up when what others need is a someone to encourage them. May we know what we are to do today and act upon it. Let your Holy Spirit flow through us today and everyday. Amen.
