Morning Prayer

After the night our spirits awaken to you, O God,
for your Word is a light to us.
Teach us, O God, your righteousness,
your commandments, and your judgments.
Enlighten the eyes of our minds,
so that we do not sleep in the death of sin.
Drive away all darkness from our hearts.
Give us your Sun of Righteousness.
Guard our lives from all blame by the seal of your Holy Spirit.
Guide our steps into the way of peace.
Let us see the dawn and the day with joy,
that we may offer our prayers to you in the evening.
