Look at the activities you anticipate in the weeks to come. Is there something you have already planned that contributes to justice and peace in some way, no matter how small? Is there something you could add to your calendar that might bring a sign of justice or peace to a person or place? Practice making this activity a prayer by turning your intention and attention to God. Recognize how love might motivate your activity. Ask God to guide your speaking and your actions. Open your heart to God's presence in the midst of the activity and express gratitude for the chance to serve with love. Through this practice, you may discover how many opportunities you have to pray with your hands and feet and voices.
