Holy One, we rise from our rest to praise you and bless you, giving thanks for all our blessings.
Preserve us from sin and hatred today, and guide us into paths of peace and justice, Lord Christ, as you taught us.
From the sun's rising to its setting, under the whirling, dancing stars, let our lives testify to the beauty of the Way of Truth.
Let us be molded by the command to love with all our hearts, and let go of fear and hatred.
Almighty One, surround us in your mercy and sustain us by your grace, and shine your light upon those we now name.
