Almighty and Merciful Father,
I praise you for the daily sunrise,
the birth of the new day
when your glory sparkles and warms and
invites us to rethink who we are and
learn again to be surprised.
Forgive me for getting stuck in a moment,
forgetting who I am and
undervaluing the promises that you have made
to bless and make new.
Thank you for beautiful reminders
that chase away the shadows and
bring the chance to start over.
In the power of your Holy Spirit.
grant me the strength to face the young day
with joy and thanksgiving and
the deep peace that only you can bring.
Remember those that suffer and
may I also lessen their burden.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
New Day Prayer
