“Lord, keep me open to others in need—
May I be ready their burdens to read.
Sharpen my hearing to things all around
Calling for help without making a sound.
Focus my vision on all of the ways
To make a difference, or brighten one’s day.
All the small services someone can do—
Lord, help me see them and do them for you!
Open my eyes, both my hands, and my heart.
Show me each day how to best do my part.”
