Morning Prayer

My Lord and my God,
a new day has come to my door,
fresh and full of life.
With gratitude and a sense of wonder,
I greet this day and You, my God.
The sacrament of sleep has healed my heart
and granted strength to my body.

My cousins in creation -
trees, birds, fish and four-legged creatures -
are arising with a song of adoration.
I desire to join my prayer with theirs.
May my simple praises be in harmony
with the songs of the wind and the earth,
as I now enter into the prayer of stillness.
