Prayer for Summer

Published on August 3, 2019

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,

and for the more casual pace

of the summer season.

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.
