"The greatest among you will be your servant.  All who exalt themselves will
be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted." Matthew 23:11-12

A deep gratitude to God for all the blessings which we have and which we
don't deserve can come to us.  We can thank God and mean it.  Then comes our
service to other people, out of gratitude for what we have received. This
can entail some sacrifice of ourselves and our own affairs.  But we can be
glad to do it.  Gratitude, service and then sacrifice are the steps that can
open the door to a new life for us.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may gladly serve others out of deep gratitude for what I have
received.  I pray that I may keep a deep sense of obligation.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
