At the Start of Your Day

Dear Lord, thank You for the night’s rest You gave
me. I am grateful for the renewed energy and
enthusiasm it has brought. Accept my gratitude for
bringing me to the beginning of this new day. I accept
it as a precious gift from You. May I use it minute by
minute to do Your will. Guide me in every problem I
face, every decision I make this day. Help me to treat
everyone kindly, fairly and thoughtfully. If I should
forget you during this day, please do not forget me.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice
and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24)
