"For the good which I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I practise." (ASV)
By the grace of God, you have allowed us to see another day. Forgive us for the moments we wasted in the previous day and help us not to make the same mistakes twice. The good we would do, we want to do today. The not so good that constantly calls us, we want to turn a deaf ear.
Lord, open our eyes that we may see you working behind the scenes of our lives. Open our hands that we may share generously the gifts you have provided. Open our mouths to speak on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. Open our mind to receive new ideas, concepts and innovations. Open our hearts to love our neighbor and ourselves better today than yesterday. Help us to be more open to your Word so that we will be hearers and doers of your Word. It is in the name of Jesus we pray, Amen
