Father in Heaven, Lord of All,
You who have created everything,
even me, your smallest servant:
one who struggles daily to follow your commandments,
Give me this day my daily portion.
Give me strength to hold my tongue
and the wisdom to know how and when
to release it.
Remind me of my own transgressions
so that compassion and grace
May always walk with me.
Let me be an example of Your love
Every moment of this day.
When darkness tries to creep within,
Arm me with your Holy Spirit
That I may win the battle
Before it is even begun.
Comfort my heart
if sorrow should cross my path,
And let me comfort others as would You,
If sorrow or despair
Comes to them.
Let me walk in the joy of Your saving grace
And return victorious to Your stronghold
at the end of this day.
I ask this as one of Your loving children,
in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ.
Thank you Lord. Thank you Lord. Thank you Lord.
