A celtic-style prayer of morning commitment


Draw close to me as I look in the mirror, lord: help me to reflect you.

Draw close to me as I clean my teeth, Lord: give me honest speech.

Draw close to me as I have my shower, Lord: cleanse and forgive me from my sin.

Draw close to me as I shave, Lord: help me to cut away those things in my life which get in the way of you.

Draw close to me as I dress, Lord: help me to be aware of my vulnerability.

Draw close to me as I put on my shoes, Lord: guide and direct me.

Draw close to me in my dealings with those I come into contact with today. May I see you in them and may they see you in me.

Amen
