Morning Prayer

When I got cancer, it pushed me over the edge. Life is short and every moment counts.

So every morning I face death, that this might be my last day. I start with the end in mind.

Facing our mortality is the most clarifying spiritual practice we can do.

It makes me realize love really counts, that what wakes me up and makes me alive, awakens my peace, and that I must choose to activate Joy every single morning. My desire is to be life-giving. And so I pray.

Morning Prayer

As the sun arises

May the light of your love stir my heart

May I drink in this sweet moment of being

Revive and awaken me O Lord, renew me this day,

Restore me with your Presence within.

Give me eyes to see

Ears to hear

And a heart that understands,

For you are the light and life within me, O Christ

O Joy of my heart

O Breath of my being.

Awaken, Awaken my Love

As the sun arises, awaken my heart.

Arise, Arise within me.

May I behold the wonder and mystery of the morning breaking

Dawn flows with the river of light and life

Flowing from the love of God,

Sparkling and quickening all it touches,

Awakening from within.

Oh ground and mentor me

Evolve and awaken me

Opening more and more of me,

Enfold me in the Oneing of all.

O light of lights

Ignite the fires of love in my heart

The joy in my eyes

The breath in my presence be.

For you are my all and in all,

For all eternity.
