Morning Prayer

God of all things, of goodness, mercy, and abundance,

God of the sunshine, of the fog, of early morning bird chirps and dog yips and coffee,

God of the hospitals, of the sick, the lonely, and the desperate,

God of the prisons, of the shamed, of the cagers and the caged,

God of miracles, God of healing, God of hope,

God of life,

We praise you. We thank you for the gift of embodied living on this precious earth. We petition you to enable all bodies everywhere freedom of motion, freedom to touch the grass with bare feet, freedom to feed themselves from the earth, and not from a chill and serve packing plant making profits from bodies without options for survival.

Remind us to love our bodies, to enjoy the pleasures of our senses, to be thankful for full bellies and warm limbs and protection from the rain.

God, grant us peace and joy today, while also fueling the fire that leads us to seek justice where there is none.

Amen.
