Let me now go forth, O Lord my God, to the work of another day, still surrounded by Thy wonderful loving-kindness, still pledged to Thy Loyal service, still standing in Thy strength and not my own.
Let me today be a Christian not only in my words but also in my deeds:
Let me follow bravely in the footsteps of my Master, wherever they may lead:
Let me be hard and stern with myself:
Let there be no self-pity or self-indulgence in my life today:
Let my thinking be keen, my speech frank and open, and my actions courageous and decisive.
I pray for all who would be faced with any great decision:
for all who will today be engaged in settling affairs of moment in the lives of men and nations:
for all who are moulding public opinion in our time:
for all who write what other people read:
for all who are holding aloft the lamp of truth in a world of ignorance and sin:
for all who hands are worn with too much toil, and for the unemployed who hands today fall idle:
for those who have not where to lay their head.
O Christ my Lord, forbid that I should ever again live unto myself. Amen.
