Prayer for Today – Joseph Tetlow,SJ

Oh, Lord my God,

You called me from the sleep of nothingness

merely because in your tremendous love

you want to make good and beautiful things.

You have called me by my name in my mother’s womb.

You have given me breath and light and movement

and walked with me in every moment of my existence

I am amazed, Lord God of the universe,

that you attend to me and, more, cherish me.

Create in me the faithfulness that moves you,

and I will trust you and yearn for you all my days.

By Joseph Tetlow, SJ

Psalm 139
