Daily Prayer & Reading for December 17, 2022

When someone asks me for a Christmas donation, help me to be generous and not look back. When the opportunity arises for me to volunteer to help others, I pray that I accept without faltering. Also, Lord, help me to remember that poor and needy people need help throughout the entire year – not just at Christmastime. Amen.

17 de Diciembre

Cuando alguien me pida un donativo navideño, ayúdame a ser generoso y a no mirar atrás. Cuando se me presente la oportunidad de ser voluntario para ayudar a los demás, te ruego para que acepte sin dudar. Además, Señor, ayúdame a recordar que los pobres y necesitados necesitan ayuda durante todo el año,
no sólo en Navidad. Amén.
