O CHRIST who sees the little and the lost:
the lost coin.
Widen my eyes with your compassion;
clear my vision with your justice;
soften my gaze with your tears
for all who need my prayers today.
- For those in prison who watch for a visitor
- For artists, writers, and dancers who bring beauty to life
- For leaders of nations, cities, and communities
- For someone you know who is searching for an answer this day
