There are too many times, O God, when we are blind to the world around us. We have set up expectations and rules that have made unable to see and do those things to which we are called. May we be open to your spirit guiding us no matter the time or the place. May we seek to remove the obstacles that are in the way of us running with others the race you have set before us. Help us to welcome those things we don’t understand. Let the miracles that happen around us be moments of growth in our faith rather than the cynicism that doubt and unfaithfulness inhibit that growth. May our eyes be opened to see you in the world around us. Amen.
