Dear Father we ask You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit and the gift of a new spirit.
As You have granted us protection from all danger through the night, be merciful to me and continue through the day to guard and keep me from every evil of body and soul, property and honor.
Open our eyes to every opportunity to do good, for You have created us in Christ Jesus to do good works and have appointed in advance that we should walk in them.
Give us faithfulness for every task set before us, and grant us grace to serve all people as we would serve You Lord.
Help us to live this day as though Jesus died yesterday, arose today, and were coming back tomorrow.
Let His Cross be our glory and His favor our crown. Let His return to Judgment not frighten us, but stimulate us to earnest attention to our faith to Him.
Grant us enough success today to be encouraged and enough difficulties to be humbled.
Give us strength to overcome when we’re tempted to do wrong and to seize opportunities to do good.
Guide us, O Thou great Jehovah, Pilgrim through this barren land. We are weak, but Thou art mighty; Hold me with Thy powerful hand."
In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
