Prayer for this day

Spirit of Life, Spirit of Love,
Spirit of Hope, Spirit of Justice,
God known by many different names:

You have given us a day unique from any other.
You have connected us, all of us, with each other, and with the world, in ways that are largely a mystery to us.
You have given us little instruction other than to be present in our own lives, to feel wonder at the creations of the universe, and to love one another.
You have put gifts and challenges in our paths, joys and sorrows, strengths and frailties, some of which we have already encountered, and others we have yet to discover.

On this unique day, may we receive exactly what it is that we need.
