Almighty God, the day is upon us, and we rise to give You thanks for your blessing and care in each moment of our lives.
Holy One, you perfectly love us, even in our imperfections and our weaknesses: forgive and restore us, we pray. May we seek a renewal of our spirits, and let go of old anger and hurts, that we not inflict them ourselves upon others. May we remember the overwhelming grace and mercy of God freely given to us in forgiving those who have wronged us.
May we welcome the living Savior into our hearts, that we may be filled with wisdom, gentleness, and love. May we walk mindfully along the pilgrim path, compassionately serving each other and our God. Lord Jesus, help us to serve you in peace and goodwill; bless and comfort all whose hope is in you.
