As I rise to face the challenges of this day, O Lord;
My heart is filled with joy, for I am aware of your constant presence within me,
Always gentle, always leading onward.
You want so much for me; you have so much to teach me.
And I am like an eager student; I want so much to learn your ways,
To follow the course you have prepared for me.
Please accept all my thoughts, words and deeds this day, as a small sign of my love for you. May I have the wisdom to see your hand at work in and through all circumstances, transforming my perspective. And in all my trials, may I rejoice with a trusting heart knowing that you are by my side.
