Thank You For This Day

Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,

I thank You for my being able to see

and to hear this morning .

I'm blessed because You are

a forgiving God and

an understanding God . .

You have done so much for me

and You keep on blessing me ..

Forgive me this day for everything

I have done, said or thought

that was not pleasing to you .

I ask now for Your forgiveness .

Please keep me safe

from all danger and harm .

Help me to start this day

with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude .

Let me make the best of each and every day

to clear my mind so that I can hear from You .

Please broaden my mind

that I can accept all things .

Let me not whine and whimper

over things I have no control over .

And give me the best response

when I'm pushed beyond my limits .

I know that when I can't pray,

You listen to my heart .

Continue to use me to do Your will .

Continue to bless me that I may be

a blessing to others .

Keep me strong that I may help the weak . . .

Keep me uplifted that I may have

words of encouragement for others .

I pray for those that are lost

and can't find their way .

I pray for those that are misjudged

and misunderstood .

I pray for those who

don't know You intimately .

I pray for those that will be sharing this prayer

to others especially to those who do not believe in You.

I pray for those that don't believe .

But I thank You that I believe

that God changes people and

God changes things .

I pray for all my sisters and brothers .

For each and every family member

in their households .

I pray for peace, love and joy

in their homes; that they are out of debt

and all their needs are met .

I pray that every eye that reads this

knows there is no problem, circumstance,

or situation greater than God .

Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight .

I pray that these words be received

into the hearts of every eye that sees it

in Jesus' name . Amen!
