“You shall not murder.”
Open my eyes, O Lord, to the value and sanctity of life. Life that exists beyond the flesh, in thought, in feelings, in spirit.
While I have not stabbed anyone, my God, I have often been quick to extinguish ideas, shoot down dreams, squash hopes and kill the remnants of joy.
We thank you for life, dear Father, and the grace upon which it stands. The first breath of every morning comes from you and you alone.
Let us not destroy what you have created. Let us learn to value life – including our own.
