Prayer Offered for February 8, 2024

Gracious God, as we celebrate another Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dragon, we give thanks for the changing of the seasons and the opportunity to reset our attitudes and perspectives.  As visionary leaders, help us to live into this new year with the qualities of the dragon:

Vitality and strength to face the challenges ahead—foreseen and unforeseen;

Resilience in the face of seemingly unresolvable issues;

Confidence to know that all is held in Your love and mercy.

We thank You for all that has been accomplished in the past year, and we ask Your accompaniment as we seek to bring safety, healing, and prosperity to all those we serve. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.

Sr. Michelle Gorman, RSM
