Holy One, we thank You for watching over us through the night, and welcome the morning You have placed before us.
Heal us of our sins and offenses, that we may live in wisdom, gentleness, and integrity. Help us to empower the powerless and protect the weak. Guide us in paths of peace and compassion today, that we may bear each other's burdens with joy.
Having rested in your refuge, let us go forth in the strength and power of the Holy Spirit, witnessing to your truth. Help us to embody the life of Christ, to bring your love into the world.
Holy One, we place within your care all those who are troubled in body, mind, or spirit. Comfort the vulnerable, Blessed Jesus, and place your hand upon those who call upon You.
