God of Abundance, we raise up our voices to praise You, in thanksgiving for this new day. We give you thanks for your mercy and loving-kindness when we have wandered from your side. Let us always seek to serve You and our brothers and sisters as true children of God. Teach us to open our hands and our hearts to those in danger or need. Remembering all our blessings, may we be a blessing to others. Give us the wisdom to align our lives with your precepts, and the courage to live out your call to radical love. Grant your peace and comfort to those whose call upon You.
