Tomorrow we will follow the story in worship of the Widow's Mite (Mark 12:38-44), and I find these words of Mother Teresa (UMH 446) to be a heart-filling way to prepare and receive the message:
Make us worthy, Lord,Don't underestimate the power of prayer to change the world.
to serve those throughout the world who live and die in poverty or hunger.
Give them, through our hands, this day their daily bread;
and by our understanding love, give peace and joy. Amen.
