|Osage Monastery Forest of Peace, Sand Springs, Oklahoma.|
Holy God, the light rises in the East, and we kneel before the glorious cross of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ.
Let us attend with joy your call to repentance and renewal, that your grace be a balm poured over our hearts.
Let us look upon the One who laid down his life for us in order that we might live and love with abundance.
When day is ended, let the story this day tells be one of gentleness, compassion, and care for all of your glorious creation.
Let us walk in the footsteps of Jesus, living a life of healing, justice for the poor and outcast, and sacrifice for others.
Let us live each moment having loved God and each other with all that we are and ever hope to be.
Embodying Christ's hands, heart, and feet in the world, we remember also these your beloveds, and ask your blessing, O Holy One.
