Prayer & Praise
This day is Your gift to me; I take it, Lord, from Your hand, and thank You for the wonder of it.
God, may I see Your presence in this Your day, every day and every way … All that I am, Lord, I place into Your hands.
All that I do, Lord, I place into Your hands.
Everything I work for, I place into Your hands.
Everything I hope for, I place into Your hands.
The troubles that weary me, I place into Your hands.
The thoughts that disturb me, I place into Your hands.
I place into Your hands, Lord, the choices that I face.
Guard me from choosing the way perilous of which the end is heart-pain and the secret tear.
Rich in counsel, show us the way that is plain and safe.
May I feel Your presence at the heart of my desire, and so know it for Your desire for me. …
Help me to find my happiness in my acceptance of what is Your purpose for me: In friendly eyes, in work well done, In quietness born of trust, And, most of all, in the awareness of Your presence in my spirit.
