Eternal Father, in Your fellowship is health and in Your grace is forgiveness and peace. By Your goodness we have life, and through Your mercies we are sure of our eternal salvation.
Take from our minds all worries and anxious thoughts, and remove from our day the irritations which make for discontent. Break to us enough bread each day, and fill our hearts with the earnest desire to obey Your will and follow in faithfulness Your Son Jesus Christ, our Savior.
Remove all sin from our imperfect hearts, and keep us humble and trusting in Your grace. Put our minds at ease as we lean upon You as the Rock that is higher than we. As we go through the day performing our routine tasks and duties, let us find joy in the things we do, remembering that we are to glorify You in all that we say and accomplish.
Bless us and those around us. Grant that we may return unharmed to our homes to enjoy the benedictions of Your love.
Then our thankful hearts will sing the praises of Your goodness and mercy throughout the evening hours, through Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Redeemer in whose name we pray. Amen.
