God of our fathers and mothers, Lord of our sons and daughters, we praise you with our whole heart. Lord, you can do all things. We pray that this day you will do the things we cannot do ourselves. Strengthen us for the day ahead. When we are restless help us to be still. When we are worried, quiet our fears. When we are burdened, lighten the load. Guide us, Lord, so we won’t lose our way.
Help us to make wise little choices that shape big decisions. Help us to be a blessing to those who can’t bless us back. Help us to turn away from the sins that so easily beset us.
In Jesus name, Amen.
