Morning Prayer

Thank you, Lord, for this glorious day
there isn't much for which I’ll pray:

just guide my steps so I won't stumble
and when I do, help me stay humble;

may I look upon my brother’s face
without contempt, but rather, grace;

help me, Lord, lose the desire
for things that would me make a liar;

guard my children and my spouse,
bring them safely back to my house;

in every instance, may I stay grateful
may my actions and words, never be hateful;

may everything I say and do
demonstrate I belong to you;

this life is a gift I can never repay,
so thank you, Lord, for this glorious day.
