Morning Prayer

Before me in the planned shape of this day

I look for unexpected surgings of new life.

Around me in the people whom I know and love

I look for unopened gifts of promise.

Within me in the familiar sanctuary of my own soul

I look for shinings of the everlasting light.

Before me, around me, within me

I look for your life-giving mystery, O God,

before me, around me, within me.
