An Ancient Prayer

"God of our life, there are days when the burdens we carry chafe our shoulders and weigh us down. There are days when the road seems dreary and endless; the skies gray and threatening. There are days when our lives have no music in them, our hearts are lonely, and our souls have lost their courage. Flood the path we travel with light; turn our eyes to places where the skies are full of promise, and tune our hearts to brave music. Give us the sense of comradeship with heroes and saints of every age; and so enliven our spirits that we may be able to encourage the souls of all who journey with us on the road of life, to your honor and glory. Amen."

--Saint Augustine
