Prayer for a New Day

This one is from a breviary I wrote for University Ministries at Samford University entitled All Things in Common. There will be print copies available on campus and an eBook on their website this fall. 

On a new day, O Lord, we know not what it brings.

If it brings joy, let us be grateful.

If it brings trial, let us be firm.

If it brings plenty, let us be generous.

If it brings scarcity, let us be helpful.

In joy, inspire us.

In trial, protect us.

In plenty, convict us.

In scarcity, provide for us.

Amen.
