O living and loving God, keeper of my soul, let my first thought today be of you, let my first impulse be to worship you, let my first speech be your name, let my first action be to kneel before you in prayer.
For your perfect wisdom and perfect goodness; for the love with which you love us; for the love with which you love me; for the great and mysterious opportunity of my life; for the indwelling of your Holy Spirit in my heart; I praise and worship you, O Lord.
When I have finished this prayer, do not let me think that my worship has ended for the day. Send me forth from these moments with joy and power that will remain with me throughout the day.
Keep my thoughts pure. Keep me truthful and clear in speech. Keep me faithful and diligent in my work. Keep me humble in my estimation of myself and generous in my estimation of others. Keep me loyal to your way for my life and keep me mindful of my eternal destiny as your child.
O God, you have been my help through all my years, I ask that you be my help today in every situation and circumstance. Be my guide through all that is dark and doubtful. Be my guard against all that threatens my spirit. Be my strength in time of testing. Fill my heart with your peace; in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen
