O Lord of all things bright and beautiful, may we begin this day in Your name.

countenance in the face of each brother, sister, stranger and friend. As we work
for your world this day, may our hunger be for justice and our thirst
for peace. Feed us with your presence. Strengthen our hearts and steady our
hands for the business of loving your creation. As children of the light, may we
walk in your radiance this day.
God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose years never fail and whose
mercies are new each returning day; let the radiance of Your Spirit renew our
lives, warming our hearts and giving light to our minds; that we may pass the
coming year in joyful obedience and firm faith; through Him who is the
beginning and the end, your Son, Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns
with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
