Prayer 2187

My prayer rises in the morning light,
as I offer my first thoughts to you, O God:
your protecting hand has been my mantle
through the depths of night,
and I have rested beneath your watchful eye.
Give us a thirst for your justice, O God,
abounding in mercy and faithfulness,
that we may be your reconciling people in the world.
Sow your wisdom within our souls, O Lord of Life,
that we may grow deep in holiness and empathy,
perceiving the unity within creation.
Gather the offered prayers we raise
within the brimming bowl of your mercy, O Christ:
and pour out the oil of blessing, we humbly pray,
upon those whose needs we lay at your feet.
