Dear Heavenly Father,
You are a great and awesome God. Thank you for the start of another new day. As we awaken to the sound of the birds singing your praises, give us cheerful hearts and an eager anticipation for the tasks you have set before us. Help us to remember that each day is a gift from your almighty hand.
We ask you to be with all who are sick and those who are grieving the loss of loved ones. Comfort their hearts with the knowledge that you love them deeply and will never leave them alone or forsaken.
Make us always aware of your presence and help us to remember that you love each of us as if we were your only child. Take away our fear of dying and comfort our hearts with the knowledge that death is not the end, but the beginning of our life with you in heaven.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24)
