We bless you our most high God and Lord of mercy.
We pray that you would bless each one of us this day.
Give us inquiring minds and discerning hearts.
Give us courage to persevere in all we undertake.
Give us the gift of joy and wonder in all things.
Give us laughter and love to share with others.
Give us protection and safety in all that we do.
And give us sure and certain knowledge of your unfailing love.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
Both now and forever and to the ages of ages.
