Most Merciful God,
morning spreads its beauty before us
as the earth awakens from its winter slumber,
as we marvel at the wondrous works of your hands
and your blessing of us with creation.
May we pull back the veil of our hearts,
and turn to true repentance for our sins,
that we may return to following Jesus,
our true advocate, Savior, and guide.
May we make our hearts a temple of your grace, O God,
and a holy habitation for Christ,
empowered by your Holy Spirit.
Hear the humble prayers of your people,
as we bring before You the cares and needs of your beloved children,
for we all stand in need of your comfort and strength.
