We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a Zuni flute song and prayer for sunrise. The sun graces our planet every day, giving life to plants and warming our air. Figuratively, the sunrise can also represent new beginnings and fresh hope.

Zuni Prayer for Sunrise from The Little Book of Prayers

Now this day,
My sun father,
Now that you have come out
standing to your sacred place,
That from which we draw the
water of life
Prayer meal
Here I give you.

Your long life,
Your old age,
Your waters,
Your seeds,
Your riches,
Your power,
Your strong spirit,
All these to me may you grant.
