17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ Luke 15:17-19
Prayer of Help: “God, if you are real, make yourself real to me. Awaken in me the willingness to turn toward you for help.”
