prayer for week of July 25

As we rise again to greet another week, O God, remind us that we are wonderfully and beautifully made. May we take nothing for granted but greet the day with appreciation, reflection and commitment to live it fully.

While we are rushing around our homes; getting children off to events; watering our gardens; feeding our pets; deciding our dinner menus; reviewing our daily work schedule ahead; may we lift our hearts in gratitude for the gift that is our life. May each of us intentionally pause as we begin another week to contemplate our lives and the routines within it that provides us so much joy and satisfaction, and anchoring.

For the small pleasures, and simple gifts, we bow in gratitude, today, and every day this week.


Rev. Al Boyce
