A Prayer for Today

It is in sleeping that my body is refreshed.

It is in letting go that my soul is revived.

It is in dying that I am born anew.

Bless to me my sleeping, O God, bless me to my letting go,

Bless me to my dying, that tonight I may enter Your stillness,

That tomorrow I may awake renewed,

That in the end I may be fully alive to You.

Tonight, tomorrow and always, O God,

May I be truly alive to You.

-John Philip Newell
