Lord, I thank you for the immensity of Your presence. As I awaken each morning to the mystery of my own presence, I realize what a wonderful gift it is to be in Your presence.
May I have joy and peace in the use of my senses,
So that I may be a "presence" Lord, to those most in need.
Lord, help me to be always aware of Your presence,
When dangerous frontiers threaten my path.
Help me to be always mindful that I am Your "work of art",
Made in Your very image.
May Your gentling presence continue to distill,
Great inner peace within my soul.
