God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning – the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. (Genesis 1:31 – 2:1)
Dear Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
As we wake up to the beauty of a new day we ask you to be with us. Whether we are at work or play help us to remember that each day is a gift from your hand. Give each of us cheerful and loving hearts and an eagerness to do your will. As we interact with others remind us who we are and help us to act and speak as true children of God. May all that we do today give you glory. When we fail and sin against you, bring us to the foot of your cross for full and free forgiveness. Walk by our side and according to your will keep us safe from harm. Bring us home this evening for rest in preparation for another day of service to you. In your holy name we pray. Amen.
