Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
 Do not cast me away from your presence,
and do not take your holy spirit from me.
 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and sustain in me a willing spirit.
From the sun’s rising until the sun’s setting, you are faithful, loving God. The beauty of your creation that surrounds us is a gentle reminder of your presence. I pray that I will be your faithful servant this day. Open my eyes, my ears, and my heart to be present to those you send in my path. AMEN.
