PRAYER FROM THE PEOPLE:

Prayer from Japan
 
Eternal God,
We say good morning to you.

Hallowed be your name.

Early in the morning, before we begin our work, we praise your glory.

Renew our bodies as fresh as the morning flowers.

Open our inner eyes, as the sun casts new light upon the darkness
which prevailed over the night.

Deliver us from all captivity.

Give us wings of freedom like the birds in the sky,
to begin a new journey.

Restore justice and freedom, as a mighty stream
running continuously as day follows day.

We thank you for the gift of this morning,
and a new day to work with you.
 
 
(Masao Takenaka, first president of the Asian Christian Art Association, Japan. BAE p.62.)
