Grace and Peace to you.
God, today I pray
for gentle patience,
as the earth that holds me, whatever I do;
for the hospitable acceptance of what is,
as the breeze that blows as it is led
and flows around what it must;
as the plants that seek light;
for steadfast strength,
as the weeds that return;
for a light heart,
as the geese that fly overhead
laughing at each other;
for deep compassion,
as the sun and the rain that fall upon us,
giving us light and life and beauty.
God, today I pray for your eternal Spirit
by which you create the world each new day
to live in me, to create me anew,
to make me beautiful and kind,
to make me yours.
