Sunshine – a morning prayer
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands… The sun rises at one end of the heavens; nothing is deprived of its warmth. The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul” (paraphrased from Psalm 19).
Lord, bathe me every morning in the sunlight of your Word.
Let it shine brightly on my sins, but not to my despair.
Warm my soul with grace.
Direct my steps with truth.
Fill my words with gentleness.
Guide my eyes towards the works you’ve prepared just for me.
Strengthen my heart with courage.
As the earth feels the warmth of the sun, let me feel your love.
As the earth feels the warmth of the sun, let others feel your love from me.
Thank you that I, like the sun, could rise with you this morning.
