Beautiful God, Blessed Trinity, I thank you for the gift of this new day.
O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me.
I ask for the gift of grace today.
All that I long for can only come from you.
I ask for the gift of peace today.
Lead me to the silence deep beneath my inner turbulence.
I ask for the gift of light today.
May your resplendence shine on me, without and within, and on all people.
I ask for the gift of true repentance today.
Change my mind and give me the Mind of Christ.
I ask for the gift of holiness today.
Cleanse me from my sins and make me a new person.
I ask for the gift of love today.
Inspire me to love you and all people, from my neighbors to my enemies.
With joyful confidence and trust I pray. Amen.
