Housewife's prayer...

O Lord, as I go about my daily tasks, cause me
to radiate with love for Thee
that my whole house might be an altar to Thy glory.

As I make the beds, help me
to smooth the wrinkles of anxiety and fear
from my face, and learn to trust more in Thee.

As I wash the dishes, teach me
to think of it as washing away the sins of the day
and to remember that Thy favorite detergent is penance.

As I bake an apple pie, remind me
to flavor my life with good fruit, some spice, sweetness
and just enough crust to give it purpose and meaning.

O Lord, it isn’t that I bring Thee down
to the level of homely things, but that I raise them
to Thy level of godliness.

Amen
