Monday Prayers by Carla Grosch-Miller,
“At every beginning,
bless our dreaming
and our doing.
The day lies before us,
full of the mundane and the miraculous,
the known and the unknown.
Be the breath we take before each step.
Be the source from which we draw strength.
Be the end toward which we direct our hope.
Open our eyes to all that is around us.
Open our ears to the song the soul yearns to sing.
Open our hearts to the love that lives through us.
Open our hands to the task the moment requires.
Let us do this one thing,
the thing before us,
as if all creation
and our very life
depend upon it,
as if You are bent over,
watching and listening
and willing us
to do it well.”
