Sunrise Prayer

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.    (Lamentations 3:22-23)

That scripture passage crosses my mind as I go with the Community to Morning Prayer, especially when the sun is rising over Lake Superior. The sun and the lake have so many faces and expressions, such a variety of colors, hues, tints, shadows, and reflections. Sometimes I stop and gaze in awe and wonder, but not too long, because I don’t want to be late for Prayer. The sun rises for all the earth and over all creation. Christ, the Sun of Justice, has redeemed all and desires to bless everyone. Our Morning Prayer, and all of our Prayer, is in praise and thanksgiving to God and as intercession for the peoples of the earth. Each day may we be God’s hands, heart and prayer for love, justice, holiness, peace, and hope in our world.
