Morning Prayer by Colin Bradford

The following prayer was written by parishioner Colin Bradford as a member of the class of 2003 at Xaverian High School. It was previously published on the former St. Gregory The Theologian website on the occasion of Colin's arrival in Kuwait, on March 24, 2006, for duty as a member of the United States Marine Corps.


Guide me as I get through this day.

Help me to make the right choices.

Allow me to take advantage of every opportunity.

And not to take anything for granted.

With each choice I make, help me honor my friends, family, and most importantly You.

Every day brings new opportunities.

Enable me to make the most of these.

Enable me to succeed in life and to help others.

And finally, allow me to realize that You have given me everything and have the Right to take everything back.
