Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,
I thank You for my being able to see
And to hear this morning.
I’m blessed because You are
A forgiving God and
An understanding God.
You have done so much for me
And You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for everything
I have done, said or thought
That was not pleasing to you.
I ask now for Your forgiveness..
Please keep me safe
From all danger and harm.
Help me to start this day
With a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day
To clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind
That I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper
Over things I have no control over.
And give me the best response
When I’m pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can’t pray,
You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be
A blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak…
Keep me uplifted that I may have
Words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost
And can’t find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged
I pray for those who
Don’t know You intimately.
I pray for those that will delete this
Without sharing it with others
That God changes people and
God changes things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
For each and every family member
In their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy
In their homes; that they are out of debt
And all their needs are met..
I pray that every eye that reads this
Knows there is no problem, circumstance,
Or situation greater than God.
Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.
I pray that these words be received
Into the hearts of every eye that sees it
