Generous God, Saint John the Almsgiver used to say: “If we are able to enter the church day and night and implore God to hear our prayers, how careful we should be to hear and grant the petitions of our neighbor in need.” Transform my attitude toward the poor and all those who have needs. Increase in me a desire to give to those who can benefit from what I have. Teach me to hear what others are really asking, to identify what I can give that would help, and to find a loving way to grant it. I want to become as generous as Saint John the Almsgiver in being the steward of Your gifts as an answer to their prayers. Saint John, pray for me. Amen.
