Dear Lord,

I awoke to a beautiful sunrise and cool temperatures, which reminded me of the wonder and majesty of Your gift of life. I reflected on Holy Scripture, which reminded me of who You are and what You are doing. I prayed, which reminded me of Your amazing grace, Your desire that Your will is going to be just as real on earth as it already is in heaven, all my blessings, and those who are hungry, sick, grieving, dying, oppressed and suffering in any way.

Lord, my prayer today is very simple. May I embrace the gift of life You have given me, Your presence in all of life, and the ways You translate my prayers into actions.

I love You, Lord.

Amen.
