Lord, in the silence of this day that is born, I come to ask for peace, wisdom and strength.
Today I want to look at the world with eyes full of love;
Be patient, understanding, gentle and kind.
See behind the appearances your children,
As you see them yourself, so
To appreciate the goodness of each one.
Close my ears to all murmuring,
Keep my tongue from all slander.
That only the thoughts that
Bless remain in me.
I want to be so well-intentioned and fair
May all those who come to me feel your presence.
Review me of your goodness; Lord, and make me reflect on this day.
