Morning Prayer

Creator God,
We give you thanks
for bringing us in safety to this new day,
announced by the dawn chorus
and greeted by the warming sun.
Look with compassion on those
who have to find their own shelter
day after day,
for those who are sick
in body, mind, or spirit.
Inspire us to see them as our own kin
and to care for their welfare
for the sake of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ.
