A Morning Prayer

Almighty God our heavenly Father,
you declare your glory and show forth your handiwork
in the heavens and in the earth:
Deliver us in our various occupations
from the service of self alone,
that we may do the work you give us to do
in truth and beauty and for the common good;
for the sake of him who came among us as one who serves,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

from The Book of Common Prayer
