A prayer of hope and newness from John Philip Newell from his book Praying with the Earth: A Prayerbook for Peace.

In this Newborn Light

For the freshness of this new day

thanks be to you, O God.

For morning’s gift of clarity

its light like the first day’s dawn

thanks be to you.

In this newborn light

let us see afresh.

In this gateway onto what has never been before

let our soul breathe hope

for the earth

for the creatures

for the human family.

Let our soul breathe hope.
