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.
