To make us smile:
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job.
Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done
To help us love:
God of every opportunity… help me to see with your eyes;
to be open to the gifts of all your people,
with a love to see lives flourish in your service.
Give me hands to shape and mould,
Skills to build and encourage,
And a heart to love and inspire.
Remind me again
of the wideness of your call –
for you sow seeds of faith,
that all may grow in you.
