Thank you God, for the serenity of the predawn. As the grey, shadow, and silence of that time provides a stillness, may we contemplate our many opportunities that will come today. Let our mind become aware like the rest of the waking world that a new day is dawning. As the wide varieties of colors and sounds begin to mark the new day, let us be energized by the opportunities before us and run with joy the race this day provides. May your Holy Spirit guide us today and always. Amen.
