A Minute of Prayer - Morning Offering


Lord, thank You for another day

In this quiet waking moment.

I thank You for the beauty of nature

A breakfast table laden with nourishment

Mind, heart, hands and feet

To carry me through the day.

New vision to face the grind

Of a monotonous routine of duty.

Give new light

To our humdrum tasks

And bless my fellowmen who like me

Have awakened to begin in their daily round.

May they come to know just as I have

The joy of offering to You

All the blessings this new day brings.



Bible inspiration : Psalms 5:3-4

I pray to You, O Lord; you hear my voice in the morning, at sunrise. I offer my prayer and wait for your answer.
