Holy Father,
I thought I was having a bad day
because someone used
all of the hot water and
we were out of my favorite cereal.

Help me to get beyond
the minor inconveniences
in my privileged life.

Open my eyes and
help me to see the places
that I can bring comfort,
ease pain and
show compassion.

Unstop my ears and
let me join those
crying out for justice,
for righteousness,
for You.
