Gracious and holy father, thank you for another day. I pray that everyone grasps the true meaning of serving others in need. I pray everyone will be accessible and do according to your will. Thus, “as Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. ‘Follow me,’ he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him” (Matt.9:9). I thank you father, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
