High and Holy One, empower my life as I begin this day ….
Frame each moment with the knowledge that Your glory fills the whole earth and that You have called me to this time and place in order to fit uniquely into the story, Your story ….
I welcome this new day and the journey it brings. May Your warm winds of heaven blow softly on me and bring sunrise into my heart because the dark clouds have seemed overwhelming at times ….
May I be open to where You lead me this day that I may be a witness to Your transforming grace, love and continuing presence ….
May Your Light shine through me that others may see Your mercy and love ….
Thank You for keeping me safe through the night and I pray that today may be a day where I live and move and have my being in You. Lord I pray that the words that come from my mouth, the thoughts that are formed in my heart and the motives behind all my actions, words and thoughts may be pleasing in Your sight and honouring to Your name ….
Lord I pray that You would be both my guide and my restrainer in all I do and say today, so that my words and deeds are not a work of my own flesh, but are guided by the promptings of Your Holy Ghost. Help me Lord to walk in spirit and truth and keep me today so that my eyes are looking to Jesus and my ears are open to Your still small voice —
Oh my Lord, how I pray that You are glorified in all I do ….
Keep me I pray from all temptation and deliver me from all the evils of the day and may today be a day when I learn more of You — so that I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of my Lord and Saviour — help me therefore to walk humbly before You today, and all the remaining days of my life. All this I ask in Jesus name, Lord I pray, Amen …..
