This morning, as I kinlde the fire upon my hearth, I
pray that the flame of God's love may burn in my
heart, and the hearts of all I meet today.
I pray that no envy and malice, no hatred or fear, may
smother the flame.
I pray that indiferene and apathy, contempt and pride,
may not pour like cold water on the fire.
Instead, may the spark of god's love light the love in
my heart, that it may burn brightly through the day.
Ad may I warm thhose that are lonely, whose hearts are
cold and lifeless, so that all may know the omfort of
