Most Merciful God, we rise to greet this day You have made, hearing the praise song of creation testify to your glory.
May we echo that praise in every moment, from our rising to our resting, and bear witness to your Love.
We thank You for your manifold blessings, especially your fellowship of saints and companions who guide us in wisdom.
Set our feet firmly in the paths of peace and compassion, O Holy One, and help us to love unreservedly as Jesus taught us.
May your Spirit descend upon us like a cloud, that our tongues may tell out your wonders, O Earth-maker.
God of Compassion, bend near to all who seek You, and envelop all who call upon You with hope.
