to the Glory of God

Morning Prayer:

Prayer by Mary Catherine ’17

“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31.

It is so easy to fall into the trap of going through the motions, doing our daily activities merely because that’s what we did yesterday.  Really, do you think about setting your alarm each night or fixing breakfast in the morning or studying for your math test?

Yes, our routines are great, but how would your daily life be impacted if you truly did all with the intention of praising God?  Would you act a little differently in the lunch line?  Would you choose to smile and say “hi” to the person you sort of know in the hallway?  Would you be a little less stressed going into that math test, knowing that you did your best to glorify God through your preparation?

Dear Lord,

Please help us to glorify you with all the small, trivial things we do each day.  Help us to remember that living in a Christ-like way does not require some colossal change in our lives, but rather just a small change in our intentions and perception of the things around us.

Amen.

Mary Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
