Prayer, day 1830
Holy One, we thank You for watching over us through the night
and bringing us to the undiscovered land of this day.
In each step we take,
may we be mindful of our God beside us.
May we hear You call our names,
lovingly and tenderly,
whenever we feel lost or adrift.
Make us bold to call upon You, O God,
and accept the joys of discipleship.
Let us treat this Earth with love and reverence,
that we may honor your creation
as gift and blessing.
May we heed your call to justice for all people,
and tear down the walls of fear that divide us.
We thank you for preserving us
through the trials we encounter,
for You are with us always.
Send your Holy Spirit
as a source of respite, healing, and comfort,
especially to these for whom we now pray.
