| Touch me, O Lord, and fill me with your light and your hope.|
Dear God, please give me strength when I am weak,
love when I feel forsaken,
courage when I am afraid,
wisdom when I feel foolish,
comfort when I am alone,
hope when I feel rejected,
and peace when I am in turmoil.
|Blessèd are you, Lord our God, redeemer and king of all; to you be glory and praise for ever! From the waters of chaos you drew forth the world, and in your great love, fashioned us in your image. May we, the first-fruits of your new creation, rejoice in this new day you have made; may Christ your light ever dawn in our hearts as we offer you our sacrifice of thanks and praise, Father, Son and Holy Spirit: Blessèd be God for ever!|
