Prayer for Spring

As the earth once again turns to face the sun we rejoice in this season of spring.

We give thanks, O God, that each day grows longer in light and that the earth has been liberated from the grip of winter.

We remember the resurrection of Your Son Jesus from the depths of death’s decay in the tomb, we lift our hearts to You in gratitude. We thank You for the gift of a day and all the graces it holds.

We ask for the grace, O God, to live in a new way. Grant us fresh dreams and new visions. May this day come upon us like Spring herself, so that our hearts may be filled with hope.

May we thus taste more deeply the joys of simply being alive. May we find the countless hidden treasures that You have scattered throughout this day and season!

May Your peace rest upon all the members of the earthen family with whom You have made us one.
