|Pray without ceasing.|
Almighty God, Holy One: You have graciously brought us in peace to this new day, and awakened us to the glory of your morning. Bless us, O Lord, and help us to be a blessing in the world you have placed us within. Help us to be joyful and reverent at play in your glorious creation; help us to gentle and patient with each other when tired. Abide with us as we work and play and pray, as we sing our praises to You, O Precious Lord. We ask your blessing especially on those whom we now remember before You.
