God who created sun, moon, and stars,
who desired a world that shines and glimmers,
open my eyes to the universe that is all around me,
to the gifts and beauties at my feet and within arms’ reach.
Remind me of the truth I already know
and the lessons I’ve already learned.
Help me refresh my prayer, my sight, my interior sense of what is good and true.
Teach me to welcome the day and its light
and not to squander the wealth and wisdom I possess this day.
