My Morning Prayer

At daybreak, as another new day dawns
Gratefully greeting the morning with my yawns
I gather my thoughts and lift up my soul
For in my sleep I was again made whole

I thank the Lord for a restful sleep
He stayed with me as I slumbered deep
He gently touched me to soothe away my pain
Thus renewed, I can take on life again

I thank the Lord for yet another day
Wondering what will come my way
I seek to do what his will is for me
To love and serve Him in all I see

For yesterday, I also thank my Lord
Have I tried to live and do right by His Word
Did I try to fill the world around me with love
Did I share with others whatever I have

Thus I begin my day in silent prayer
Welcoming into my life God’s grace and power
To lead me not into temptation and boredom
But to deliver me from evil and into his Kingdom


At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were looking for him; and when they reached him, they wanted to prevent him from leaving them. But he said to them, ‘I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.’
Luke 4:38-43
