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