Morning Prayer

Loving Father, thank you for family, friends and neighbors, for our daily bread, for the rain and the dew that brings growth from a parched earth, and for all the ways you bless our lives. Thank you for being with us, in us and all around us as we spend time physically separated from others. May this day we spend time sitting quietly in your presence and listening to you. Protect all who are experiencing dangerous weather this day. Give us the grace to be quiet, to listen for your voice in our hearts, just as Elijah heard you in the silence so may I hear you too. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen
