acceptable prayers

Does God have a set way of prayer, a way that he expects each of us to follow? I doubt it. I believe some people — pray through the witness of their lives, through the work they do, the friendships they have, the love they offer people and receive from people. Since when are words the only acceptable from of prayer? – Dorthy Day

Gracious and loving God. Empower each of us this day to pray without ceasing. Allow our every action to reflect your compassion for those of our family most in need, and ensure that everything we do demonstrates  your sacrificial love and your justice for the poor and the hungry next door, down the street, and around the world.
