I need some of that. So the "alternative opening prayer" listed for Mass today really struck me as I read my Word Among Us this morning:
Lord God of power and might,Please pray that I would be a better lover - of God, of my husband, and of all the good people in my life.
nothing is good which is against your will,
and all is of value which comes from your hand.
Place in our hearts a desire to please you
and fill our minds with insight into love,
so that every thought may grow in wisdom
and all our efforts may be filled with your peace.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN!
