God of Mercy, let our prayers rise to You with the morning mist, carried to You upon winds of faith and hope.
We praise You and bless You, Our Rock and Protector, for watching over us through the depths of the night.
From our rising to our resting, let us fasten our thoughts upon your commandments, that we may dwell in love.
In all our pathways, may we walk in wisdom, gentleness, and peace.
In all our trials, may we rest in the arms of our Savior, Companion in joy and in struggle.
In each moment, may we be alive to the beauty of your creation in all we encounter.
At day's end, may we lie down in peace, and rest once more within the unfailing goodness of our God and Creator.
Fill us with grace through the power of the Holy Spirit, O Holy One, and press your blessing upon those we remember before You.
