A SUMMER PRAYER

A PRAYER FOR SUMMER
 
Father, Creator of all, thank you for summer.
Thank  you  for  the  warmth  of  the  sun  and  the  increased daylight.  
Thank  You  for  the  beauty  I  see  all  around  me  and  for  the opportunity  to  be  outside  and  enjoy  your  creation.
Thank  you  for  the  increased  time  I  have  to  be  with  my friends and family, and  for  the  more  casual  pace  of the summer  season.

Draw me closer to you this summer.
Teach  me  how  I  can  pray  no  matter  where  I  am  or  what  I am  doing. Warm  my  soul  with  the  awareness  of  your presence  and  light  my  path with  your  word  and  counsel.  As  I  enjoy  your  creation,  create  in  me  a pure  heart and  a  hunger  and  a  thirst  for  you.

Amen.


Wishing you a
safe and restful holiday!
 
Summer blessings from
everyone here at the
Office for English Pastoral Services
Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Montreal
