A Prayer for Waking Up

The following Celtic Prayer was written by the South/Central neighborhood group. Click here to see the other prayers.

God you are constant like the rising sun each morning.
I need your presence today
     more than the fields need your sunlight
     or the rivers need the rain.

Without you, my words are empty.
Without you, my heart is not whole.

I thank you Lord who lights my path.
I thank you God who shines through my life.
I thank you Lord for warming my relationships.
I thank you that each new day starts off bright.
Guide me with your breeze and let me be fueled
     from the warmth of your Son. Amen.
