Dear God,
Thank you for this new day, its beauty and its light. Thank You for our chance to begin again. Free us from the limitations of yesterday. Today, may we be reborn. May we become more fully a reflection of Your radiance. Give us strength and compassion and courage and wisdom. Show us the light in ourselves and others. May we recognise the good that is available everywhere. May we be, this day, instruments of love and healing. Lead us into gentle pastures. Give us deep peace that we might serve You most deeply. This we ask through the One who serves us every moment, Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
Our life is in the eternity of God; our light is in the truth of God; our joy is in the goodness of God.
