Eternal Father of my soul, let my first thought today be of Thee, let my first impulse be to worship Thee, my first speech be Thy name, let my first action be to kneel before Thee in prayer.
For Thy perfect wisdom and perfect goodness;
For love wherewith Thou lovest humankind;
For the love wherewith thou lovest me;
For the great and mysterious opportunity of my life;
For the indwelling of Thy Holy Spirit in my hear;
for the sevenfold gifts of Thy Spirit.
Yet let me not, when this morning prayer is said, think my worship has ended and spent the day in forgetfulness of Thee.
Keep me chase in thought;
Keep me temperate and truthful in speech;
Keep me humble in the estimation of myself;
Keep me faithful and diligent in work;
Keep me loyal to every hallowed memory;
Keep me mindful of my destiny as a child.
