Prayer for a New Day


Dear Lord, This morning as I contemplate a new day, I ask you to help me.

I want to be aware of your spirit—leading me in the decisions I take, the conversations I have, and the work I do.

I want to be more like you, Jesus, as I relate to the people I meet today—friends or strangers.

Jesus, you were always about your father's business and I thank you that he is now my father too because of what you did on this earth.

Although I know that I am weak, I also know that by the power of your spirit, I can be strong in the work I do, the decisions I make, and the words I speak.

I thank you that you promise to be with me always, and for being the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amen.
