A Morning Prayer by Alan McDougall

Last night we dreamt about a most beautiful place
Infinities of eternal and infinite space
Some call it heaven where you dwell
Really it is just your love bringing down this perfect spell

We awoke at early dawn now free of strife
All the beauty of the infinite sea
Each body began to filled with new life
And we thank you for an expected day to me

At early dawn of a new day we all with joyful face
For this eternal day that only you have made
We awoke this morning full of joy and faith
Because last night we dreamt about a most beautiful place
Far from this worlds rush and madding pace

Oh! Father, Lord and beautiful God of love
You give us hope to praise to you up above
In sweet content out of a night of joyful sleep
We know that because of you today we need not weep

In thankful joy we awoke full of life and health
Now by this we all know real true eternal wealth
We rose and went outside and saw the last star
Just a hands reach and not really far

A brief moment before the golden sun began to rise high
The bluest colour began to fill the domed of the sky
Thankful wonder for all of us with security and peace we try
Deep within each hearts we knew we all seek kept
As we awoke from another slept

In this sublime sweet moment of morning dew
Each crisp breath we thankfully know comes from you
Already internal infinite a little like you true
All take hands now and in this moment sublime grace
We live in peace and glorious magnificent timeless place

An evening prayer by Alan McDougall

Thank you Great Father for this day
And the health which gave us strength to play
For quite enough to eat and drink
For work which gave we need to think
May our thoughts be kind and true?
Good thoughts acceptable to you
May each task we do each day
Be done in just your perfect way
May we spread your joy and love about
Both indoors and out
Thank you mighty one for this lovely day
Now bless our sleep Oh! Great, Infinite and Eternal God of we pray
