A Prayer in the Morning

by the Rev. Charlie Dupree

I woke up early this morning. The sky is beautiful, the birds are chirping, there’s an unusual coolness in the air.

Here’s a prayer from Celtic Benediction by J. Philip Newell:

As the light of dawn awakens earth’s creatures

And stirs into song the birds of the morning

So my I be brought to life this day.

Rising to see the light

To hear the wind

To smell the fragrance of what grows from the ground

To taste its fruit

And touch its textures

So may my inner senses be awakened to you

So may my senses be awakened to you, O God.

Have a beautiful day.

See you in church,
