O God, this fresh, unblemished day stretches before us.
May we be dilligent in the tasks ahead.
May we be faithful to your call toward integrity.
May we participate with your movement of grace, peace and hope.
May we banish fear, living by trust.
May we be filled with your Holy Spirit, empowered by you.
Because of these things, may today be spiritually invigorating,
while contributing to your healing and reconcilation of this world.
Through the power, grace and love of Jesus Christ, may it be so.
