Prayer for a New Day

October 16, 2014

Join the rest of us in this prayer today:

We give hearty thanks for the rest of the past night

and for the gift of a new day,

with its opportunities of pleasing you.

Grant that we may so pass its hours

in the perfect freedom of your service,

that at eventide we may again

give thanks to you.  Amen.

 —from the Eastern Orthodox tradition,

#676 in our current United Methodist Hymnal

See you back here tomorrow and let’s think together about this prayer.

For right now, join the rest of us in simply praying it.
