Prayer of Awareness

Blue Mountain sunrise (h)

The peace of morning’s stillness

the peace of new beginnings

the peace of heaven’s kiss

to welcome us to this day

to root us in this day

to free us for this day

that we may grow with the greening earth

that we may grow from the ground of glory

that we may grow in grateful wonder

of You

Gracious Giver of this day

Great Giver of this new day.
