PRAYER: Summer Prayer by Jim Manney

Summer Prayer by Jim Manney

From Ignatian Spirituality

Father, Creator of all, thank you for summer!
Thank you for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight.

Thank you for the beauty I see all around me
and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy your creation.

Thank you for the increased time I have to be with my friends and family,
and for the more casual pace of the summer season.

Draw me closer to you this summer.

Teach me how I can pray
no matter where I am or what I am doing.

Warm my soul with the awareness of your presence
and light my path with your Word and Counsel.

As I enjoy your creation, create in me
a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for you.

Amen.
