Let my prayer come to you early in the morning, o God.
You protect us while we sleep, waking us to the morning light.
New possibilities lie before us in this day, to treat one another
better as the, neighbors that we are, to love one another as we
love ourselves and are loved by you. Remind us of Your open
arms whenever the road gets rough. Help us to be Your people
so that others see the evidence of You in our lives. May we
always care for each and every part of Your creation and
make You known in the breaking of bread. Amen.
