Heavenly Father,
you have blessed your children with many gifts.  Help me to use the eyes you gave me to see the beautiful creations I often take for granted.  Help me to use my hands to calm the trembling hands of others and let my hand remain open to anyone who may need it at any time, as yours does to me.  Help me to use my lips to speak only words of comfort and change, and give me confidence so that my lips are never closed when it is necessary to speak out.  Finally, let me use my heart to appreciate fully the gifts you blessed me with and to provide your children with the love they deserve.  Amen.
