Lord of my life, I kneel before you this day.
Today is full of possibilities: it hopes for new beginnings. Please help me, Father, to not break the promises of yesterday. Let me see no person in distress and pass them by.
Where my deeds can help make this world a better place for men to live in, where my words can cheer a despondent heart or brace a weak will, where prayer can serve God’s Kingdom, there let me do and speak and pray.
give me courtesy:
give me meekness:
give me longsuffering:
give me charity :
give me chastity:
give me the sincerity of speech:
give me diligence in my tasks:
Grant me the grace to be worthy of Your name.
