A Thanksgiving prayer from Ricardo

fray9-bodyguard-friend-and-ricardo-11-24-2016Our partner, Ricardo, of the NGO CorGuate (Corazones en Acción por Guatemala, or Hearts in Action for Guatemala) recently traveled to Fray Bartolomé de las Casas, Guatemala to take the next steps towards our projects in Chajmaic, before we move to the #GuatemalanArtisanChocolate project in San Antonio Suchitepéquez.

Upon his return, Ricardo sent this prayer:

God on high, we thank you for the opportunity to serve you in this blessed work of helping our most needy brothers and sisters.  We thank you because you have accompanied us, guided us and protected us from all evil.

To you, God, we humbly ask you to help us in this time of difficulty that is now going through the whole world, protect us from all evil and all danger, at the same time, teach us that helping a person is how we help the world, and that giving to the most needy is how we come to you, that our love for others is as perfect and profound as the love that you feel for us all.

We love and bless you God, today, tomorrow and forever.  Forever and ever, AMEN.
