A Morning Prayer for Early Gratitude
O Lord, how you watch over your flock by night, how you keep them when they are inanimate and unable to keep themselves. Thank you for keeping us through the night, that we would enter again your present favor. Impart to us early today a heart full of thanksgiving, first for the simple and the mundane, then for the extravagant, for all are given by your hand and all are good if they bring us to you, our chief good. Amen.
