Happy Friday, Lancers!

Dear God, Thank You for fearfully and wonderfully creating each one of us. Thank You for making us worthy in Your eyes. Help us live as the ones You uniquely intended us to be. Help us to abide, instead of strive, living peacefully and joyfully as heirs to Your Kingdom and co-heirs with Christ. In Jesus’ Name. Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
