Lord Jesus, I offer you this new day because I believe in you, love you, hope all things in you, and thank you for your blessings. I'm sorry for having offended you and forgive everyone who's offended me.

Lord, look on me, leave in me your peace and courage and your humble wisdom so that I may serve others with joy and be pleasing to you all day.

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Every day I need you Lord, but this day specially. I need some extra strength to face whatever is to be ... This day more than any day I need to feel You near - to fortify my courage and to overcome my fear.

By myself I cannot meet the challenge of the hour. There are times when human creatures need a higher Power - to help them bear what must be borne. And so, dear Lord, I pray - hold on to my trembling hand and be with me today.

 

A prayer found in a Reconciliation Service program

"Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in your mercy, give us a safe lodging and a holy rest, and peace at the last. Amen."
