A Morning Prayer
Grant unto me, O Lord,
that with peace of mind
I may face all that this new day is to bring.
Grant unto me to dedicate myself completely to Thy Holy Will.
For every hour of this day,
instruct and support me in all things.
Whatsoever tidings I may receive during the day,
do Thou teach me to accept tranquilly,
in the firm conviction
that all eventualities fulfill Thy Holy Will.
Govern Thou my thoughts and feelings in all I do and say.
When things unforeseen occur,
let me not forget that all cometh down from Thee.
Teach me to behave sincerely and rationally toward every member of my family,
that I may bring confusion and sorrow to none.
Bestow upon me, my Lord,
strength to endure the fatigue of the day,
and to bear my part in all its passing events.
Guide my will and teach me to pray,
and to love.
I read this prayer to my DH a morning or two before he left this earth, for his heavenly home. When I finished, he said 'that was nice'.
It is a good prayer.
Today is the day the Lord hath made, may I rejoice and be glad in it.
