A Prayer for Mission Discernments

Grant us, O God,
the ability to see everything now with new eyes,
to discern and test the spirits
that help us read the signs of the times,
to relish the things that are yours,
and to communicate them to others.

Please give us the clarity of understanding needed
to carry out our mission this day.
