God of the morning and of the evening hours, we thank you for the beauty of the earth and for the glory of life.  We confess that at times we have turned away from Your light, and denied Your presence in our lives with our sin.  You know what is heavy on our hearts.  Forgive us, we pray, heal us of our fears and restore us to our truest selves.  Reconcile us to each other and You.  Illumine our minds and hearts with Your Spirit.  Amen
