Prayer 1312: Morning Praise
The first bird of the morning lifts up her song of joy: let us join her in raising praise to You, O Lord Most High. We thank You for this beautiful Earth beneath our feet: let us waken the dawn with our songs of joy.
Our trust and hope rests in the Lord, the Ground and Source of All That Is: Come, Holy Spirit, and fill our hearts with wisdom. Our fingers may forget their skill, but let our tongues praise You and our actions testify to your transforming grace. Forgive, Lord, and restore us to paths of peace: let our fight be for those who are oppressed, seeking justice with loving hearts.
Blessed Jesus, receive our prayers and praises, and bless us and those for whom we pray this day.
