we breathe in your peace with our wakening breath;
we praise your name from our inmost being
and give you thanks for your care through the night.
By your wisdom and love, Loving Savior,
turn us away from sin and contempt;
like a potter, reshape the clay of our hearts
that they may be worthy vessels of your grace.
Renew a right spirit of charity and hope within us,
and strengthen our resistance to evil,
our willingness to embody your mercy and justice
as your disciples,
as your children, O God.
Healer and Comforter,
we place our cares and concerns before You;
envelop within your mercy those for whom we pray.
