SUMMER  PRAYER


Heavenly Father,

Creator of all,

Thank you for summer!


Thank You for the warmth

of the sun and the

increased daylight.


Thank You for the beauty I see all around me and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy Your creation.


Thank You for the increased time

I have to be with my friends and family.


Draw me closer to You this summer.


Teach me how I can pray,

No matter where I am or

What I am doing.


Warm my soul with the awareness of Your presence,

And light my path with Your Word and Counsel.


As I enjoy Your creation,

Create in me a pure heart

And a hunger and a thirst for You.


In the name of Jesus, Amen.
