Our minds wander, our hymns are listless, our prayers are just words, we are corrupted by jealousies, and distracted by trivia. Forgive us, Lord, for our coldness and inattention, then direct our minds to your Word and warm our hearts by your Spirit. O Lord, receive these gifts with our gratitude and with our prayers. We give them with gratitude because we have received so much; we give them with our prayers because we know that only if your power accompanies them will they achieve their desired result. Divine love through me blesses and multiplies all that I have, all that I give, and all that I receive, in the name of Jesus.
