I love to watch the glow grow in the morning sky just as much as I love to watch the setting of the sun. I may not have a lot of time to do either but I love it just the same.
The glow always reminds me of potential and promise. The dawn represents the potential waiting for us in a new day. The evening glow reminds me that the promises of God will be strong and true through the night.
"God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day."
Genesis 1: 5
God of the Morning Sun and Evening Star, the creator of dawn and dusk, we desire to live a life worthy of you. Awaken us from the dark night of the soul. Rescue us from the grip of fear and doubt. Clothe us with your love and grace to greet the day with confidence.
Wash us and cleanse us of all our iniquities. Reclaim our bodies as your own. Cut the strings that bind us to the gods of this world. Renew in us the joy of our salvation and then deliver us from our contentious ways and blind ambitious habits.
When the shadows of dusk seek to overcome the day, help us to find comfort and rest in your presence. In Jesus name, Amen.
