A Prayer for Today

We thank you for the beautiful world you’ve created for us to enjoy:

the kaleidoscope of a rising sun,
the harmony of sparrows, cardinals and robins in concert,
the soul-cleansing fragrance of a gentle spring shower.
We thank you for the people who add joy and depth to our lives:

our families who share our celebrations and our tragedies,
our friends who choose us for who we are and not for what we can do for them,
our neighbors who work with us to make our community secure, peaceful and welcoming.
May we be found worthy of the responsibility you’ve entrusted us with to tend your creation.

May we also fulfill the obligation you’ve called us to as people who do justice and love mercy.

We make this petition to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
