New every morning is your love, Great God of light,
and all day long you are working for good in the world.
Stir up in us desire to serve you,
to live peacefully with our neighbors,
and to devote each day to your Son,
our Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.
(taken from “An Order for Daily Prayer and Praise” in the United Methodist Book of Worship; it was a prayer said in the service I attended this morning at Greenland Hills UMC)
