We praise You, O God, for Your blessings are without number.
We thank You for your protection through the night, that we might rise and witness this glorious day.
We thank You for the beauty of creation: that we remember we do not own it but are charged to protect it.
We thank You for communities of family and friends who support us: we may reach out to those who are alone or vulnerable.
We thank You for your boundless grace and forgiveness: may we forgive those who have wronged us, so that we may praise You with open hearts.
O God, You are with us always: pour out the balm of Your love on those for whom we pray today.
