Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You…. May your good Spirit lead me on level ground.

Ps 143: 8 & 11 NIV

Moments of quiet,
Moments of still,
Time to praise God,
To seek his will.

I come to him,
As the day begins,
To seek his help,
In all that it brings.

To receive his energy,
His enabling grace,
To love and to serve him,
Wherever I am placed.

Gracious God, we praise You for this new day, whatever it may hold. Thank You that we can walk through this day with Jesus, guided by your Holy Spirit. We take a moment to lay out day before You and ask You to speak into our hearts…

Thank You that you can work through us in the small and seemingly unimportant details in our day; may we be kind and encouraging to others and sensitive to the leading of your Spirit. We pray for others and ourselves; for your inspiration in any opportunities, your strength through any difficulties, your comfort in any sadness and your peace in any anxieties.

Thank you that however our day progresses, your love for us is steadfast, sure and unchanging. Gracious God, we praise You, in Jesus’ name.
