O God of all New Beginnings,                                                  
                                                                               
As we begin this day anew, we are mindful that we have not                    
always made wise use of our thoughts, our words, our deeds,                    
and our time.  We are therefore grateful that with each new                    
morning we get a chance to begin again.  Inspire our hearts                    
and move our bodies to try harder in all we do.  Yet be gentle                 
with us when You stir us to action.  And during this day give                  
us both sunshine and rain, joy and sorrow that we may see                      
Your bounty in all things.  Amen.
