With grateful heart we rise to praise You, O Lord, our God, for You have refreshed us with a restful sleep and given us Your grace to see the dawn of a new day.
You have also made this day. It belongs to You. Grant that every word we utter and every act we perform will reveal Your presence in our life.
Make us thoughtful and considerate at work, and keep us patient with those who irritate us. Remove from our heart all malice and resentment, and enable us to bear quietly the unpleasant situations that we cannot change.
Protect us from all temptation, from doubt and worry, from lovelessness and strife. Throughout this day enrich our life with Your blessings. Protect us from accident and harm, and bring us safely home tonight, for the sake of our Lord and Savior.
In Jesus name we pray. Amen
