Jesus, Lord of my life, nature is busy at work. Our days are shorter and cool breezes are stirring fall leaves all about. Jesus, you have promised to keep us, even though things are constantly changing. You have given us the call to reach out to those who have less. There is the need for food and warm clothing. As we show your love to others, may we be more like you. O Lord, your face is before us, your strength is within us and your light is guiding us all the way. Holy Jesus, I pray. Amen.
