Salpointe Weekly Peek - September 15, 2023

Happy Friday, Lancers!

God, grant me a moment to reflect on your gift to me of this day. Help me to see your touch in all that has already happened and to hope you will be with me in all that is still coming my way. For the tasks you have given me and for the strength to face them, I thank you, Lord. For these moments of peace and for the ways you keep me going, whether I am aware of them or not, I give you thanks. Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
