Lift up our hearts, Lord. Lift up our eyes to see your work around us. As day falls to night, help us close the chapters of our days and rest in you.

Lift up our hearts, Lord. Lift up our hearts to see the best in those around us, to behold them as creatures of your divine love and grace. Show us how to more perfectly love one another.

Lift up our hearts, Lord. Lift up our minds and intellect to seek purer, higher, and greater ways of living. Invite us to be of one mind, seeking your will.

Lift up our hearts, Lord.

Blessed be. Amen.
