Leader:   As we rise in the morning, Loving God, may we don garments
of your truth.

People:  May we wear the mantle of your protective blessing
and shoes that will guide us on your path.

Leader:   May our every breath be a prayer, so that we might truly
and fully proclaim the mystery of the gospel.

design our day.

Morning Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
